We kicked off our Homeschool Geography Co-op with a Plane Ride because our goal is to Travel Around The World through reading, crafts, mapping, and hands-on learning fun this year. Did I mention food and feasting?
This month, we were studying Europe, so we had another Geography Feast using Travel God's World Cookbook.
Each family made a dish from a country in Europe.
I made EZ Paella from Spain. Pattie made Swedish Cabbage Pudding (it also has ground beef and potatoes, too), Molly made Bratwurst and Sauerkraut from Germany, and Leanne made Fruit Crumble from England.
Everything was delicious. We had so much fun tasting new dishes, especially the children.
Before we ate, we talked about different countries in Europe and food they are known for.
We also talked about how so many of our favorite American dishes have roots in other countries like French Fries (Belgium), Pizza (Italy), Waffles (Belgium), French Toast (France), and Macaroni and Cheese (France). Europe is known for all kinds of cheese--cheddar from England, Swiss from Switzerland, and Ricotta from Italy. This small continent is also famous for her pastries and desserts like Apple Pies from Germany, Shortbread from Scotland, Crepes from France, Doughnuts from the Netherlands, and Danishes from Denmark.
You can travel the world in your kitchen with Travel God's World Cookbook. Read more about it here.
The print book is available from Amazon.
The E-book is available from PayHip and Currclick.
Our homeschool co-op families have used this cookbook all year long and discovered several new dishes that families want to make again and again.
Your family will love it, too.
After all, who says learning can't be delicious.
Have Fun Traveling in your Kitchen.
