Teach a kid's cooking class and win!

The more people register to teach a cooking class for the "Let's Get Cooking with Kids" Food Day Campaign, the more copies of our book Get Your Family Eating Right we will give away!

That's because FamilyCook and the organizers of Food Day 2013 are working together to make this campaign a success!

Here is how the contest works:

Everyone who registers a cooking class on the Food Day map of events with "Let's Get Cooking" in their event title are automatically entered in a giveaway of Get Your Family Eating Right. The winners will be drawn on Food Day.

But there is ANOTHER chance to win using your Twitter account! On Food Day, tweet about your event using the #LetsGetCooking hashtag and we will automatically enter your name in a second giveaway of Get Your Family Eating Right. Winners will be drawn at the end of the day on Food Day.

So, again, you can win two ways.

  1. Register a "Let's Get Cooking" event on Food Day map + enter in one cookbook giveaway.
  2. On Food Day tweet your event using #LetsGetCooking + enter in another cookbook giveaway. 

Pretty simple ways to promote your Food Day event AND win a great new cookbook!

So get started now!

Sardine Collage

Vamos a la playa a comer sardinas!!! Sardines at the beach are a summertime fun in coastal Spain.  We love them just grilled and sprinkled with sea salt and lemon. Traditionally, many beaches have shack-like open air restaurants right at the shore where one can enjoy local wild catch in between swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. In Southeastern Spain, where my parents are from, sardines are abundant and cheap and the favorite food of locals and tourists. 

Even children learn at an early age to detach the juicy body flesh leaving head and tail in one piece united by their bones. Most will eat the crispy skin as well, and even some of the bones. These shacks limit their menus, mostly to seasonal fish, which makes it easier to fight picky eaters. Nature was wise to create the season of sardines around summer when there are more opportunities to cook them outdoors. Their pungent, strong odor will stay for days in your kitchen. During the winter, these pleasurable summer memories are recalled while opening a can of sardines in olive oil and eating them with bread and other vegetables.

Sardines are an acquired taste, especially if you didn´t grow up eating them. My daughter Sofia would not touch them yet; she is scared of mistakenly eating the tiny bones. She also thinks it is too much work deboning the animal for such little flesh. She grew up in New York eating fish that has no head, tails or bones. It may take her until her adult life to accept sardines. What´s important is that every summer when she is in Spain, she is building these memories associating a good time at the beach with parents, cousins, aunts and uncles devouring sardines with pleasure. Keeping fun family traditions entwined with real healthy food is key for assuring lifelong healthy diets.

What about where you live? What traditions have you followed that associate real food with family traditions and fond memories? How do you and your family connect with seasonal summer food in your hometown or the places you escape to?
