Cooking Challenges

Inspired by Leslie Williams Grantham’s Ramen Noodle Challenge (THANK YOU), I created several more Cooking Challenges for my students to experiment with at home for an E-Learning assignment. Additional cooking challenges all follow the same format as Leslie’s, but use different foods. Check out the challenges below…I can’t wait to see what my students create!

Cooking Challenge Foods

  • Ramen Noodle
  • Rice
  • Tortilla
  • Mac & Cheese
  • Grilled Cheese

Basic Instructions

  • All cooking challenges require students to research and share facts about the highlighted food.
  • Each challenge requires students to take the food and add a protein and vegetable to it, creating a new food.
  • Students must share their ingredient list and their recipe.
  • Finally, students must plate the food they created in a pleasing manner and photograph it.
  • Photos are attached to the project and the entire challenge is submitted to Google Classroom.

    Thank you for sharing! I have been looking for a fun way to teach cooking to my new students virtually! This is going to be fun! I am using the tortilla challenge as a part of my Cinco de Mayo lesson next week.
