The start to “Around the World in 12 Dishes” was about something most people don’t think about when looking at new places, the food. We decided to TRY and introduce new food to our then 2 year old and created a series called Around the World in 12 Dishes. We also wanted a series that hadn’t been done yet and at the time it hadn’t.
Around The World in 12 Dishes takes you on a journey around the world, exploring 12 different countries with our children, by cooking 12 dishes with them. One for each country visited. The world is such a wonderfully diverse and colorful place. Our children see maps, flags and books. They see postcards and maybe they see films about the world… we really bring it to life through food! Taste and smell don’t often get explored, we think this is fun and interesting for you and your children. Not only is it an exciting and different way to learn about cultures, but cooking with children brings a host of benefits – from numeracy to science, discovery to closeness.
And we do not stop at cooking, but also look at crafts, cultures, holidays and more, extending the value even further. Each month also comes with a colourable placemat and an interactive passport that you can collect throughout the year.
Come join us in our travel around the world and discover new places and cultures – one dish at a time!
