THE BOOKSHOP IN YOUR HOME

by Preschools and Infant-toddler centres – Istituzione of the Municipality Reggio Emilia, and Reggio Children

 

Online packages being sent out to families by each Reggio Emilia preschool and infant-toddler centre, providing ideas, help, and some means of overcoming children’s feelings of solitude and isolation, also contain lots of recipes.

The recipes remind us of Reggio Emilia’s commitment to maintaining kitchens in every municipal early childhood centre; a choice with a strong cultural and educational significance.

Kitchens can be a virtuous weave of local culinary traditions, ecology, a culture of dialogue, art, and planetary connection.

All the recipes you find here can easily be made by children and parents together and have been taken from THE LANGUAGES OF FOOD – Recipes, experiences, thoughts - Reggio Children editions  

 


MUFFINS

 

INGREDIENTS

White flour  150 g

Corn flour  100 g

Sugar  90 g

Eggs  1

Fresh blueberries  100 g

Butter  90 g

Baking powder  2 teaspoons

Salt  pinch

Zest of 1 organic lemon or orange

 

PREPARATION

In a mixing bowl, mix the two flours with the baking powder, salt, sugar, zest, and blueberries.

Form a well and add the butter (melted), milk, and egg, and blend well to form a dense batter.

Be careful not to over-mix, as this could make the muffins heavy. Place paper cups in the muffin tin and fill each halfway with batter.

Bake at 200°C (400°F) for 20-25 minutes or until the muffins have risen and are still soft when pressed lightly.
