Designed to promote diversity, The Cultured Chef offers recipes and stories about world culture
More than just a cookbook, The Cultured Chef offers ways to stimulate all of a child’s senses through unique recipes, whimsical illustrations, and stories about fascinating people and places around the world.
“The goal of our cookbook is to create a global community of children concerned about what goes on around them. It not only introduces children to other cultures, but encourages them to use their new cooking skills through direct involvement in their community,” said Nicholas Beatty, author of The Cultured Chef. “Preparing and delivering recipes to local shelters gives children a broader sense of their community, and encourages lifelong philanthropy.”
Each illustrated recipe in the book offers easy step-by-step instructions that allow kids to take the driver’s seat in the kitchen, with a supervising adult as their assistant. Readers can choose from a wide assortment of Breakfast, Lunch, Appetizer, Dinner, and Dessert menus.
Cooking and cultural education make the perfect partnership. Spending time in the kitchen allows many opportunities to learn life skills such as counting, measuring, and following instructions. While cultural exploration offers an opportunity for children to become healthy and active participants in an ever-shrinking global community.
