Over the past week, students had to research a country/region that they were not familiar with and pick out some common recipes from the foreign land. There were many interesting foods prepared and even some I had never tried before, The students also had to research customs/festivals of that country and what types of food are typically grown in that region. Overall,it was a success with students tasting foods that they have never tried let alone make. A great experience for these young chefs! Try to guess the countries and food selections below.
