International Kids Cooking Show

Whilst talking to my new friend Wes at the teacher conference I discovered he has a daughter excited about the possibility of making a cooking show. I wondered if any of you are interested in cooking. I certainly love cooking and so does Miss Freeman.
Have you watched Jamie Oliver's highly educational cooking shows? He is brilliant and has a social conscience as well.
I propose that if we can find suitable "hosts" and maybe use our school tv studio or cooking room, we could record brief cooking shows and share them online somehow. We could set up a cooking show internationally and get other kids from around the world and NZ to contribute. I bet Teaching Sagittarian's kids in Thailand would be interested. Perhaps each segment could be designed to share local cooking specialities?
What do you think?

Mr Woody, I suggest you get in touch with your local cuisine queen Mrs Twiss. She uses Youtube for her culinary delights. During the holidays she tweeted about many of her delicacies including baklava, she had found a very humourous cooking demonstration on how to make Turkish Baklava - informative and entertaining.

If your class struggles to "book" the cooking room you could make your first show all about the "kiwi BBQ" instead!! You could even raise funds from that.

If you want to see Mrs Twiss a little flustered you should ask her about cooking pavalova's (hehehehe).

Good Luck with your cooking show I hope it gets off the ground and if you need a non-bias judge then you know how to contact me!

My little sister and my StepMum just made short-bread. Yum.
Anyway, it's great, because heaps of people resort to takeaways, and teaching the Younger Generation how to cook will make everything MUCH better, and hopefully takeaway will be a thing of the past.
Phew! What a mouthful!

I think its a really cool idea particularly if you had a NZ flavour to it and focussed on National dishes that other people overseas might not have heard of.

Mystery Man said...

Maybe we could book the food room when there is no tech (it does happen you know)and it would be really fun to revisit the cooking scene

I think you have some compitition bubbles. I think it's great that we could have a cooking show Mr Woody. :)

MrWoody said...

T be a successful candidate I suggest you start thinking about how to make your cooking show content highly interesting, with a local flavour.
In terms of format, it will need to be brief but have good impact so it sticks in people's minds.
To be successful we need to utilise something called viral marketing, as well as the strength of our connections to other interesting people online.

Great idea, gives them the opportunity to learn about healthy food habits, came across this site and would like to share it with other moms –
helps you teach your children to cook and information on the numerous benefits enjoyed by moms who encourage their kids to cook. Easy and fun online cooking classes which you could enjoy with the help of your kids.
