Arabic Sofrah: Food Traditions and Nutrition
Ages 9-12, Presented by Kalimah Programs
Campers practice planning, preparing, and serving Arabic Sofrahs (food spreads) for all three meals as they learn the history and evolution of meals and nutrition. Taking turns with different roles and stages of meal prep, campers learn the customs and etiquettes of group eating with Arabs. Projects include comparisons and contrasts of prices, meal presentation, and nutritional contents and values of popular Arab meals and fast food chain restaurants here and there.
Sugar and Spice at Tea Time
Ages 5-8, Presented by Kalimah Programs
Games and cooking activities help campers learn the history and significance of sugar, spices, herbs, and other Silk Road trade items. Using drama, little traders reenact the historic role of Arab traders in introducing coffee, dates, olives, and more to the rest of the world. As little scientists, they learn to identify, analyze and compare the staples in Arab meals. Hands-on projects include the use of food in innovative STEAM activities and preparing simple recipes for community tea time once a week.
