On Wednesday, we worked with the children in small groups to create Dukkah as part of our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program. The children measured and mixed, observed the shapes of different seeds, the smell of seeds before and after we toasted them. They used their strength and coordination to grind the seeds in a mortar and pestle. Finally, the children enjoyed the fruits of their labour with olive oil and Turkish bread. The verdict: “Yum.”  “It tasted good, but I think I didn’t like the little seeds.” “The seeds smelt like dumplings.” “I liked cooking. They smelt delicious…” “I liked mixing it.”
