Multicultural Cooking

Process

Before beginning your research journey you will be assigned to a group of four students that will choose a country to research from a list provided (each group will research a different country).

First Step: Go to http://www.teachnutrition.org/default.aspx?SectionId=234 to do a practice review of your knowledge of the Canada Food Guide to healthy eating. This is to help guide healthy meal planning. Step Two: Plan how your group will proceed with researching your chosen country. This will assist your group in becoming an authority on the country and its culture. To achieve this you will decide how you would like to approach your research. (i.e. you may have each group member research all topics; you may divide topics among the group and then share and compile your findings; or you may come up with your own research plan - be sure to discuss this plan with your teacher before proceeding). Step Three: You will compile a recipe book with a minimum of twelve dishes that are specific to your country. Step Four: As a group, you will decide on how you are going to present your research findings to your class (i.e. posters, power point, skit, other art or technologies or an idea of your own). Step Five: Finally, you will choose two of these recipes that you will plan (budget), in preparation of creating and serving to the class in the culminating stage of the Multicultural unit. You will have 7 days to work on this project in class. You will then have one double block for class presentations and another double block to share your dishes.

Some topics and questions to address that will help you succeed in your project:
1. What is a people's 'culture'?
2. What factors helped you select this country for your quest?
3. Where is your country's global location? (include a map)
4. What are the typical foods of the country your group is researching? Are these foods typical to their daily diet or are they more specific to holidays and celebrations?
5. Are there environmental influences on types of available food in this country? (i.e climate, geology, global position). Explain.
6. What are the four food groups in Canada's Food Guide? Does the country you chose have a Food Guide? Compare the foods from your selected country to how they fit with Canada's Food Guide.
7. What are common customs and traditions of the country/culture you have chosen? (consider special celebrations, salutations, costumes etc.)
8. Describe and explain specific symbols and or colours that represent your culture.
9. How will your group present your findings?

10.Look at the history of the foods you have chosen to represent your country and explain similarities and differences that are common or familiar to the history of food in Canada.
