Making a quiche together with your children will accomplish many things at once. First, you will be making either lunch or dinner.  Second, you will be helping your child to learn to cook.  Third, you can teach them some French along the way.

You can go to or another recipe website to find a great recipe!

Here are some vocabulary words that you can use in your lesson.

le fromage – cheese
le sel – salt
le sucre – sugar
le oignon – onion
Je cuisine – I cook

Teaching your kids French through food – crêpes

April 06, 2009 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: cooking kids teach french

It’s fun to make French foods with your kids to teach them about a different aspect of the French culture. One of my favorite French foods are crêpes.

Here’s a recipe I’ve used in the past that I found here:

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.

I have to admit it took me a few tries before I made some good ones, but it’s fun to try with the kids. We all laughed about it.

What you put inside your crêpes is up to you, but we like strawberry jam in ours and also Nutella. Nutella tastes good on anything! Oh and whipped cream tastes great on crêpes too.

Bon appetite!
