The Languages of Food: Recipes, Experiences, Thoughts


Italy, 2007, Reggio Children, Illus., Softbound, 108 pp.

In Reggio Emila, the choice of having a kitchen in each of the infant-toddler and preschools has always conveyed a strong meaning, both pedagogical and cultural. The kitchen is a place for listening to the families and their habits, as well as for orientation toward the community, where lunchtime becomes a space and context of relationships and encounters with the world. This is the backdrop for a cookbook made up of good recipes, experiences, projects and thoughts that are constructed and take shape in and around the kitchen.
