The Learning Lab Cookbook:
Oh, wow, the power of food is amazing! Historically, covenants were formed over a meal. Food heals. Food inspires. Food destroys. My family and I have a practice of bring the problems or milestones that each family member faces during the day and we lay them out at the dinner table to think of solutions or to celebrate accomplishments. We also have a practice of gathering around a table, minus chatter about problems, and form covenants to repair big riffs between members. My family is fully aware of the healing powers of a meal and we capitalize on these properties.
My students participated in a recipe competition against each other. Each student was invited to submit no more than two recipes. Recipes had to include ingredients, a grocery list, and step by step instructions.
