Food and Travel Videos
The kids love watching food and travel videos. To say they are fans of Anthony Bourdain unnecessary, cause who isn’t. They really enjoy watching videos about places they are staying in or going to soon. Weird food videos are always winners!
Activating taste buds
Every new location is full of food discoveries. Every adventure outing includes a new place to eat and try something different. In some cases, we try lots of different places which serves the same food to then choose a favorite.
When we stay longer periods of time in places, favorites start to get set. For example, mango and sticky rice in Bangkok or Cheese Borek in Istanbul.
There are lots of ways to incorporate food into a Worldschooling education. One of the most obvious is to go out and eat; street food, cafes, restaurants, historical eateries, etc. You can go further and watch videos and read blogs to find the best of each place. Try taking a cooking class with the kids and maybe even make a video of the experience
“Context and memory play powerful roles in all the truly great meals in one’s life.”
