More food! 8 more ways to seek culture outside of class

I already had 31 options for students to practice Spanish weekly outside of class. They requested more music, so I came up with 6 more musical options. They also requested  more food, so here are some ways I've thought of that students can interact with Spanish language and target culture while teasing their taste buds.

Taste
Find 5 different snacks, candies, or drinks from the Hispanic Foods section at the grocery store or from a Hispanic market. Read the packages, maybe taste them (AFTER purchase), and compare their flavors and ingredients to snacks that are more common in the United States.

Try a dish at a Latino restaurant that you have never tried before and learn how to say the ingredients in Spanish.

Make a dish from a cooking video in Spanish from YouTube (here's a playlist where you can start).

Pin
Create a Pinterest board of at least 10 recipes in Spanish for 10 different dishes from a specific country or region. Be sure to include the name of the country or region in your title for the board.

Create a Pinterest board of at least 10 recipes in Spanish for desserts from at least 3 different countries.

Create a Pinterest board of at least 7 different recipes in Spanish using an ingredient or spice that is common in one or more Spanish-speaking countries but is not common in the United States (e.g. tamarind, jicama, hibiscus, mole, plantains, tomatillos, goat). Be sure to include the name of the ingredient/spice in your title for the board.

Watch
Create a YouTube playlist of at least 5 cooking show videos in Spanish (under 10 minutes each) for different dishes from a specific country or region. Be sure to include the name of the country or region in your title for the playlist.

Create a YouTube playlist or Pinterest board of ads in Spanish for popular snacks from different countries (not including snacks already popular in the United States).
