“When Your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight.”

The Cooking Workshop harnesses the creative and intense sensory fun of making and eating foods to "taste and see" the Bible lesson.  Be sure to read "What is the Cooking Workshop?"  All our Bible Lesson Forums have Cooking Workshop topics full of ideas. Supporting Members should be sure to visit the Writing Team's exemplary and extra-creative Cooking Workshop lessons.

This topic began as a list of brainstorms from several seminars hosted by Phyllis Wezeman on the topic of "Cooking" in Sunday School.  


You will see many cooking workshop lessons listed in the Lesson Forum here at that use these ideas.


You are welcome to add your brainstorm to this list.


However, if you have a specific cooking lesson idea, find the correct Bible story forum here in the Exchange and post your lesson idea there.
