While we've been staying home, many families have used the time to encourage kids to expand their culinary range. While we can't visit far-off lands at the moment, it's a good time to talk about the origins of different ingredients and why many are unique to specific regions of the world. Seek out the websites of cities, countries or resorts you might like to visit. Many are offering recipes that will enable you to explore the food and drink of destinations around the world. From curry and coconut to bok choy and barbecue sauce, there is a story to accompany every flavor you'll sample.
