Cooking can be fun and healthier than going out to a restaurant! It’s all a matter of knowing what your family likes, what you all enjoy, and spending some time together learning and doing new things!
Here are some tips and ideas to design a cool cooking competition for you and your family.
Pick a Challenge
Depending on the age of your family members and their particular tastes, you can pick a challenge or activity to set up the competition.
Do you all like sweets? Maybe a baking or dessert creation challenge can come in handy. Want to teach the little ones to collaborate in the daily kitchen chores? How about giving each one of them a side dish to complete in a certain amount of time?
You can also think of surprise contests: whoever can peel a potato faster… give a surprise ingredient to all competitors to create a snack from… The possibilities are endless!
Make it Collaborative
Competition can bring individuality afloat, but in this kind of activity, collaboration works best! Cooking can be faster if everybody helps and it’s a great way to develop some empathy for the one doing the daily meals.
Collaboration also fosters delegation and commitment. Adults can perform the hard or hazardous tasks such as chopping or using the stove, and the kids can do simple things like mixing, decorating or putting together the final dish.
Turn it to a ritual!
These cook-offs are ideal to create a routine at home, foster healthy habits, and learn to cook. Food must be enjoyable! You can design simple tasks or challenges with ORGANO products to start that approach for everyone at home. Some ideas:
