Over the past few years I have worked on integrating different cultural themes in a meaningful and respectful way in my high school Food Studies classes. It has been a journey of discovery and reconciliation but I have built up a better understanding and hope that the students in my classes have come to learn and grow as well. I have developed projects centred around Indigenous Heritage Month, Black History Month, Asian Heritage Month and other months of recognition or celebrations throughout the year. Other projects have explored Canadian Heritage Foods and each student's own personal heritage and traditions. The planning is continuing as I explore more. Today I would like to share some of what I have learned, including project ideas, student examples and then through a mixture of demonstrations and hands-on-cooking, we will work together to prepare some dishes connected to the projects I have done with my students. Come join in the journey.
