Don’t have the time to pull out all the ingredients for a demo? Did you forget to pick up your groceries? Don’t have access to a food lab for a demo? Have you ever considered showing a youtube demo of your recipe? There are many great youtube and online videos i.e. Foodland Ontario, Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, etc. That have great demos of their recipes. “Joy of Baking” is one website that I use for baking demos. I have my foods classes watch the demo the day before a lab to observe the various cooking or baking techniques. There is a great Chocolate Chip Scone recipe on the website that highlights kneading dough. I use this lab in conjunction with my lessons on the role of ingredients in baking. This is a great lab for HFA 4C/4U. Please visit the “members only” section of our website to download the recipe, video link and lab report that accompanies the video.
Teaching Food and Culture? Attached is a mini unit on Mexico; Mexican cuisine & culture. Students will explore the traditional foods found in Mexican cuisine and take part in learning about the culture and characteristics that define Mexican cuisine. The regional map along with the PowerPoint will help students understand the types of food found in Mexico and how those citizens create healthy and exotic dishes.
This resources explores attitudes surrounding food and encourages students to consider how attitudes about food impact food choices, and suggests some alternatives to a diet mentality and a restrictive approach to food. Many students carry certain stereotypes about foods and it is crucial to change the dynamic of these stereotypes to be a more positive and beneficial one. Considering Canada's Food Guide has recently changed, this resource is a perfect match for exploring those changes and why these changes were brought in.
