Adventures in Cooking: A Collection of Recipes for Use in Nursery Schools, Day Care Centers, Head Start Programs, Kindergartens, and Primary Classrooms.
Foster, Florence P.
This is a collection of recipes which children involved in early childhood education centers can prepare for their own consumption. The recipes were contributed by teachers in such schools based on their own successful experiences in using cooking as a learning experience for children to incorporate and integrate a number of intellectual tasks, language stimulation, sensory perceptual awareness, motor skills, social living and gratification into the school program. It includes recipes for soups, vegetables, meats, cheese and egg dishes, salads, relishes, dips and spreads, breads and butter, cookies, cake, pie, puddings and fruit desserts, beverage, and candy. The appendix includes an article on cooking in an early childhood curriculum, a bibliography of picture books to coordinate with cooking experiences, and a selected bibliography of recipe books. (DG)
