Anyone who's worked with me knows how much I promote getting the kids cooking.
Not only does it provide bonding time and teach them so many valuable life lessons (maths, following instructions, safety, how to provide for oneself) but it gets kids hands on with food.
The more selective an eater the more important it is for them to be involved in the prep. This is not baking cup cakes every now and again but learning how to put a meal on the table.
In this I do practice what I preach! Joe stepped up Sunday and said he'd like to cook a "Roman feast" as part of his homework. He proceeded to make spelt wraps, salads, anti-pasto assortments and fried sausages which he'd researched had been available in Roman times.
Such an empowering thing for him.
Judith is passionate about good food and is even more passionate about enabling other people to enjoy the wide variety of fresh food available today.
