Family Recipes and Books Club: Recipe of the Month
Comments by Nanor Rose Demirjian:
This recipe was really fun and easy to make. I especially like the part where you flip the pancakes when they're cooking. I ate my pancakes with maple syrup on top and sliced strawberries that I already had at home. It turned out delicious and was the perfect Sunday brunch for me and my friend.
Family Book Club: American Family Food Stories
The Family Book Club will pair food sustainability stories and American children's literature with short “take home” recipes using food items and ingredients from the text used in each session. All “take home” recipes will be from the United States, focusing on sustainable eating.
during each Family Book Club session, families will listen to and discuss a story with their child and the moderator, addressing topics and great ideas surrounding sustainability and environmental preservation. Families will then return home with their “take home” recipes to engage in a family-focused activity with their child, trying new American dishes and addressing topics from the text. Families and children will complete family photo journals and recipe books to document their collaborative learning experiences and to share their journey with members of the ASM community.
Recommended age groups for planning stage, phase 1: 6-10
