How can cooking together help bring my family closer

My kids and I have become more organized when it comes to cooking. It has been an important lifeline for all of us since the coronavirus pandemic struck us all a few weeks in the past.

My adult children haven’t had much interest in cooking, my younger children were especially interested in cooking steak au poivre, which was their favourite dish. They would go to the kitchen once the sauce was ready to be ignited sarma recept kulinarika and stare at the flames from at a safe distance. They would also be clapping at the sounds and smell of smoke alarms.

I started inviting them to cook for me from time the time. They could assist with peeling vegetables, cooking steaks, flipping pancakes and so on.

As a creature of social media, I would also often post photos and videos of my creations — including the obligatory slo-mo flambe — which eventually gave me the idea to combine the activities and give birth to “Daddy and Holly and Liam’s Cooking Show,” a friends-and-family-only Facebook endeavor that we’d put out once every month or two. This format helped to structure seemingly unrelated lessons and also made it more enjoyable for kids to learn how to cook.

Food preparation has never been more crucial since the outbreak of coronavirus. Adults are aware that people are constantly searching for something to do during situations of lockdown. For children, disruptions to their routines could be very stressful. Zoom classroom can be a great alternative, but it’s just not enough.

We also have to confront the fear that a pandemic could affect the adult brain in addition to the dual concern of helping our children cope with the new realities, and preventing them from losing their cool.

Cooking together has been an escape from the coronavirus. You don’t have to go it on our own, such as watching Netflix or Disney Plus. We talk about food, I tell endless father jokes, and I am able to startle the kids by pretending to be cutting myself. It’s a great, clean and fun.

Cooking is a great method to introduce coronavirus-related learning. Handwashing is a fundamental part of daily kitchen activities. Today, we make a loud buzzer sound whenever someone touches our face. Then we head straight to the sink to do 20 second antiviral scrubs.

You don’t have to make every dish a showpiece of culinary talent. Tonight, I’ll prepare tacos using a mix (gasp! There are still some tricks and tricks I can use tonight to make tacos with mixed ingredients.

I wish I could say that cooking for the kids eases my burden. They may take longer to finish their tasks as I do, and often the results are less polished. There’s also more clean-ups.

In a world trying to prevent a global crisis in the near future, extra time may be an asset.
