Fairchild Challenge Cookbook

Learn More

The Fairchild Challenge is a free, multidisciplinary, standards-based, STE(A)M-focused environmental education program for middle school and high school classrooms. Students this past year were challenged to research traditional cuisine within their families and/or ethnic backgrounds and map out the origins of the foods and major ingredients in a particular dish. There was an emphasis placed on locally, organically, and ethically grown ingredients. That dish was then created by student individuals or teams.

This cookbook is the result of the students’ hard work and culinary creativity. Feel free to read the recipes and try them for yourself!
