Tasting food is a great way to encounter and engage with other cultures. In addition to the inherent yumminess, there is a Jewish belief that what we put into our mouth speaks to how we relate to the world. But not every recipe is suitable for every educational setting.
The recipes featured in Passport to Peoplehood have been specially chosen to maximize group participation and for ease of production. To maximize impact, the discussion questions provided contextualize cooking and help students understand food as cultural production.
