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
