The International Festival Taste-Fest
- Grades: 3–5
After a performance on the stage during our International Festival, students and their parents head to our gymnasium where they serve a food that represents the cuisine from their country.
Every country has favorite foods that are eaten by its citizens and some specific foods that are eaten only on special occasions. Students (with the help of their parents) are asked to make a favorite food from their country that will be served at the "taste-fest." We provide parents with websites that have international recipes if they do not have any of their own. When deciding how much food to prepare, we remind parents that it is just a "taste-fest." We ask that food be served in small sample portions for approximately 50–60 people.
All recipes are collected and are used to create an international cookbook. All families receive a copy of the cookbook so that they can make any of the delicious foods that they enjoyed at the taste-fest.
