There’s no better time than your kid’s formative years to introduce them to the role that food plays in the whole world around them, and that is where the Ger-Nis Kids in the Kitchen Sustainable Food Camp steps in. Food affects every step of our life experience, and that is true for human beings worldwide! In this class, we’ll expand our focus on food to a global scale, talking about global cuisine and localized food cultures! We’ll educate your middle child on world herbs and spices, fair-trade chocolate culture and fruits of the world, and where all of these globally appreciated goods come from geographically. We’ll get cracking, customizing herbed and spiced pancake mixes for your kids to take home, making spiced pancakes and getting creative using tropical fruits and chocolate chips and wash them down with homemade fair-trade fruit punch using herbal and spiced fruit syrups we’ve made in class! We’ll stamp their Ger-Nis Global Cuisines Passports, documenting the terrain they’ve covered in the world of food while opening their eyes to the ways other cultures create and experience food! Your middle child will certainly love to learn all about all of the ingredients coming from vast expanses of the globe!
