Ratatouille - 26th November 2010

Cubs love cooking over the fire!
Need I say any more?

A rat named Remy dreams of becoming a great French Chef despite the obvious problem of being a rat in a rodent-phobic profession!
Cubs are given a balloon which has an elastic band tied around the top. This is tied to the cub's ankle. On 'go' cubs must "kill those rats" by stamping on the other's balloons.

Remy throws in some ingredients and 'whala' the soup is a success and Linguini's career as a chef is born.

Part of the Instruction for the Caracal was "lighting a match" and "fire safety"

Remy risks death to enter a human kitchen where he discovers five-star chef, Anton Gusteau, author of "Anyone can Cook"

RELAY GAME: Dicing Death
In relay formation cubs run up to the "human kitchen" (empty coke bottle) where they have to dodge all the kitchen items falling to the floor (dropping toothpicks into the coke bottle)

The caracals also did some mapping learning how to recognise objects from the top, bottom, side, front or back.

Each cub is given a random card with a picture on it which is either shown from the front, back, side etc and they need to place it in the correct bundle.

The Cheetahs made some lovely hot soup as well as apples dunked in hot chocolate.

The Lions made this interesting Box Oven.

Cover the inside of a fairly big box with tinfoil.
Decide how many coals will be required - 1 coal for about 10 deg C - so approximately 18 coals should do the trick. Place these into a baking tray.
Place tin foil over a flat tray and on it place your item to be cooked. The cubs were cooking lovely cookies.
Place lid on top and let cook for approximately 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked!
Akela Sharon's Peculiar Peanut Parcel
half a cup of peanut butter
half a cup of sugar
1 egg
Mix all together
Spoon onto baking sheet
Bake at 180 deg C for 10 minutes.
(This was tested in a conventional oven - and it works!)
The Carcals also wanted to cook something of their own so we braai-ed some marshmallows.

The Leopards also made some enormous 'twisters'

which really looked good!

Remy's passion for cooking set into motion an exciting rat race that turned the culinary world of Paris upside down!

Cubs having fun!

1st Benoni Cubs were out on their raft on the dam today..

Having fun on the raft ... and not even a cub!
Till next Time
Keep Cubbing
