Disney Recipes from Movies
Are you looking for Disney recipes for your FACS class to teach your kids or students about different regional cuisines but want to get them interested? Here are Disney Movie country’s regional recipes that can make cooking and learning to cook fun for your FCS, Culinary Arts classes, or your homeschool class.
Let’s start with one of the newest Disney movies…
🇨🇴 Encanto– Encanto is set in Columbia, South America. The setting is vibrant and beautiful and it is all about the home and comfort. One dish mentioned in the film is arepas. Mirabel even sings about the dish…’My mom Julieta can make you feel better with just one arepa’. Arepas are pretty easy to make and would be a great cooking lab for your students or your children at home while watching this musical! We have a blog post on South American cuisine and other global foods labs if you would like more ideas for the region.
🇳🇴 Frozen– This movie has a soft spot for me because my daughter starred as Elsa in the middle school musical last year. Frozen is set in Norway and they have a pretty neat dessert called Tilslørte Bondepiker. It translates as “veiled peasant girl” and includes apples and bread crumbs. I can imagine Ana and Elsa enjoying this little trifle-type dessert. If you would like more about Norwegian food, we have a full lesson on the Foods of Norway. Your FACS class will recognize this theme!
🌍 Lion King– Let’s head over to Africa and make a delicious and healthy African drink. This African tea includes honey or your favorite sweetener, ginger, and lemons. Ginger is loaded with antioxidants and can settle an upset stomach and ward off diseases so we love this drink to sip on especially in the summer! We have a lesson on the Foods of Africa that includes a slideshow, guided notes and questions if you are looking for a complete activity.
