|Reviewers Comments: ||This curriculum provides many interactive activities to keep students attention. Lessons are organized and provide a ‘background’ section and references. Lessons include a couple activities and a tasting/recipe. Lessons may require educators to purchase or order outside materials. Some nutritional analysis is provided for the recipes, some are not. Lessons are best suited for a younger audience.
