About the Book

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.

Cultural exploration offers an opportunity for children to become healthy and active participants in an ever-shrinking global community. Students develop an understanding of and respect for diversity across cultures, ethnic groups, geographic regions and social roles.

The focus of literature-based instruction is to help children develop literacy skills through having real-life literary experiences. Folktales throughout the book activate a child's imagination and act as a springboard for a higher level of engagement during cooking and craft activities.

The Cultured Chef introduces students to artists and various art forms from a wide variety of cultures around the world. Students are encouraged to create art through cooking, gardening, craft projects, dancing and music.
