As part of national curry week run a session which looks at different food around the world, discuss why we find different food in different countries. Get the scouts discussing why curry is so popular in the UK (history, colonialism, immigration). Give the scouts a curry recipe which then then follow in patrols using gas burners to cook a delicious meal! the scouts should talk about food hygiene and also they need to clear up afterwards!
