Transversal competence in Education is the most fundamental concept that guides Cooking Languages’ activities. Our workshops therefore aim at weaving and incorporating different educational aspects within a single session:
Our workshops are a hands-on experience and are designed with the cooperation of corresponding teachers to cover all learning areas:
We encourage active use of grammar structures and vocabulary, according to class language level.
We use seasonal produce, easy to acquire in our area; we prioritize fruits and cereals over other ingredients. We propose healthy recipes that show a sustainable patter of consumption. The cooking techniques and utensils depend on the age of the students and we adapt to the space available in schools.
We work on nutrition at various levels of complexity according to students’ age. Together with the different subjects’ teachers, we choose recipes that teach and relate to nature or chemical processes, or help us understand historical, geographical or social issues.
