Choose and Cook is an easy, fun story based program about preparing healthy food and home kitchen management. Aimed primarily at non-readers with severe learning difficulties of all ages, and perfect for mainstream primary classes.
Pupils choose a meal to make then find the ingredients from different places in the kitchen. They are then taken through the cooking and preparation process, where they choose the correct utensils for the job. Finally, they invite a friend and enjoy the meal together.
This program can be used in tandem with real cooking and home management lessons. Although real experience is vital, Choose and Cook enables your class to focus on the actual processes without being distracted by the physical and cognitive challenges of individual tasks. The simple recipes in the program can all be easily produced in the kitchen.
Supports the QCA "Developing Skills - Additional Priorities" documents and the DCSF initiatives in healthy eating and cookery classes. In supporting Design & Technology, it enables students to practice the skills necessary to plan a healthy meal, select and use the tools (utensils) and materials (food) they will need for the various processes, and communicate their understanding of what they have learnt through choice-making.
