In this class, we will explore some of the most popular dishes in the British Isles. British food, like the country itself, has a very long and interesting history. Some of their most iconic dishes have interesting and fun names. For example, would you eat a 'toad in the hole'? There's a very interesting story behind the naming of that popular family dinner. What's the difference between 'cottage' and 'shepherd' pie? Did you know that fish and chips played an important role in World War...
-What the word 'British' refers to. -The geographic location of the British isles. -The history of Fish and Chips and how it played an important part in World War II. -Why eels were once a popular food for London residents. -The names of several iconic Britsih dishes as well as their origin stories. -The regional differences in the names of some British foods. The various food items we discuss will be shown in a Google slides format. The students will be encouraged to participate actively in discussions throughout the class. I believe that learning is fun and I hope your child will be enjoying themselves so much that they don't even realize how much they're learning!
I am an American who married into a British family and lived in England for 5 years. Since then, I have become obsessed with everything British. I especially adore their cuisine. My British family members are always amused by my fascination with their everyday foods. A trip to their local grocery store brings me such delight. I have enjoyed reading and discovering the history behind all the food that they find so "common". I am excited to share and hopefully ignite the same passion that I have developed over the years with my students.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
