I love to cook and I love cooking with my children. I love to push myself out of my comfort zone and try something new. Before lockdown I would always travel with my children and expose them to different cultures and cuisines. I think it is important to get children to experience different foods from such a young age too. My youngest loves his food and is such a cultured little baby.
I had so much fun during the cooking and experimenting with different recipes I decided that i'd do it once a month. This month we enjoyed injera which is an Ethiopian cuisine. My partner is Ethiopian so his mum makes it for us often. As a mum of mixed heritage children I try my best to ensure there is a level of representation of both cultures. Therefore I'll experiment making different Ethipoian dishes. Kaion really gets in there eating his lentils, cabbage and spinach. Out of my three children Kaion is the most cultured, he is not afraid to dig into something new.
Not only do I encourage my children to try food from different cultures, I read books which talk about food from different cultures as well as encourage them to cook with me.
