Cooking Round the World Director, Mindy Myers has been in the field of education for more than 20 years, teaching, writing curriculum design, and serving as a principal. She loves working with kids and they love working with her.
When she offered up explanations about a food's origins and the customs behind preparing the food, she watched the children's engagement grow.
"Cooking and eating takes on a different meaning when you understand the back story," said Mindy. "Learning a little bit about a country, then preparing that country's food truly enriches the cooking lesson, and makes the eating experience that much more delicious!"
