Your online experience will start with a welcome from your Australian host, and the chance to meet any other participants joining from around the globe. You’ll share your own interests in Australian cuisine, go through all the ingredients and equipment, and have the chance to ask any questions before you start making your own ANZAC biscuits.
After a traditional gunfire breakfast (not as scary as it sounds!) it’s then time to bake! As you begin making your biscuits, your host will share with you where the name of these biscuits came and why Australian families started baking them over 100 years ago. ANZAC biscuits hold a special place in the heart of many Australians and your host will share with you their stories and memories of the treats.
Because ANZAC biscuits are usually made for a particular day of remembrance, you will learn what other traditions Australians normally do for this day. One of which is a fun game that is only played on this one day of the year. Your host will teach you the game and you’ll have a chance to play it while your biscuits are baking. You’ll also get lots of ideas for different arts and crafts you can make that are popular with Australian kids to celebrate this day of remembrance.
You will also get a chance to learn about other Australian foods that are enjoyed on particular holidays or year-round and ask any questions that you have about ANZAC Day or Australia in general.
We will finish the experience with a short story and poem, which is another one of our traditions, then finally, once the biscuits are ready to come out of the oven you will get to enjoy a delicious taste test. Smiles are guaranteed!
