Travel is probably off the agenda for the near future, but visiting far-flung destinations through food is always an option. Eat2explore offers cooking activity kits for kids geared to many countries and continents. Each contains appropriate, straightforward recipes, with cultural background, shopping lists, simple cooking tools and some of the ingredients, like spices, included. They’ve just added a special New York City kit, with recipes from Daniel Humm, Cédric Vongerichten and Natasha Pickowicz. The company will donate 20 percent of the New York kit price to Rethink Food, a food distribution group of which Mr. Humm was a founder.
