Spanish Rice is NOT Spanish Cuisine!

Spanish Rice is NOT Spanish Cuisine!

Summary

No!!!  Spanish rice is NOT authentic cuisine from Spain, but what is?  In this project student groups will explore authentic Spanish cuisine and create a menu for their new Spanish restaurant. Students will then use the menus to create an order for delivery from several restaurants and include the cost they expect to pay, based on the menus, in dollars and euros, including a tip for the driver.  Finally, each restaurant will present at least 2 of their “specials” at an in-class restaurant convention.  The groups will taste-test each other’s items and rate them to determine who has the best new Spanish restaurant in town!

TIPC Ratings

Target – Students collaborated with their peers both synchronously and asynchronously to complete the menu and coordinate props and food for the food convention. Teams they established determined how roles for the project would be handled. Each team member contributed to the final products.

Target – Students decided what would be the best method for designing their menus. Each had to develop a system to work together on the google site because only one person could edit their menu page at a time. Each team had to respond to “orders for delivery” placed via their online menu and determing the total cost. Each team also created a commercial to advertise their new restaurant. These comments and commercials were communicated in the Spanish language that corresponded to the World Language unit they were studying.

Target – The entire menu development was a creative endeavor.  Additionally, students were required to post a “Yelp-type” review of the restaurant as it was portrayed during the food convention. Students took risks in deciding which foods from their restaurants would be best to serve during the food convention.  Students also created advertisements for their restaurant to increase the desire for critics to try their food and post favorable reviews.
