Reggio Children | Loris Malaguzzi International Centre | Reggio Emilia Approach

The languages of food

We are what we eat! But what do we eat? In Reggio Emilia the choice of having and keeping kitchens inside every municipal infant-toddler centre and preschool has always had a strong pedagogical and cultural meaning. Kitchens become a virtuous weave of local culinary tradition, ecology, culture of dialogue, art, and the world. The time for lunch becomes a space of relations and encounter with others and the world.
From this context a cook book was born, made of good recipes, experiences, projects, thoughts.
