Shalom Food Elective Families,
What a great 3 weeks we had with your students tasting and cooking different foods, and connecting it to freedom, slavery and justice.
After spending the first week in the classroom tasting different Passover and Hametz foods, we moved into the kitchen in the second week to make a delicious vegetarian broth and matzah balls. Students had fun spicing up the broth with vegetables, mixing the matzah ball mix and rolling matzah balls. Of course the eating was a great highlight too! In addition to the cooking there was also an art project – a tissue paper decoupage matzah tray to use at your Seder. First the students pasted different words, relating to the foods tasted/cooked and concepts discussed, on to their trays. The next week students completed their trays with the tissue paper decoupage.
Sampling the soup and matzah balls went hand in hand with some dinner table conversation.
Here is the link to the dessert recipe. We hope you enjoy!
