5-15 June 2012
This school year
2011-2012 saw another set of activities for the Turathuna
Centre moving forward with forging more value education for
A two-week culinary arts session aimed at teaching the
preparation of Palestinian and European food to young adults aged 13-16 years
old, who in turn learned the discipline of working together and the art of
sharing meals together.
Besides the cooking lessons there was a hiking fieldtrip to
Battir, a village rich in Palestinian heritage with lovely country-side views.
In Battir, the group was offered lunch and received an explanation about the
village and its agriculture and watched a film about the village.
Below are an array of photos
featuring the cooking lessons as well as the trip to Battir.
How to Prepare
and European Dishes
with Chef Peter Hermantas of the
Institute of Hotel Management
Learning to cook helps teenagers to
learn about nutrition and acquire healthy eating habits. In a
world of fast or junk food, teenagers would easily be prone to
consume this type of food. The camp aims to provide guidelines
for a happy and healthy living! And it teaches the value of
traditional ways of preparing food.
The trip to Battir was in cooperation
with the Center for Cultural Heritage Reservation, PMSP, Battir
Environmental Museum funded by the Italian Cooperation.
