A couple of months ago, we shared an easy Italian meatball recipe, one that Jaf helped cook up himself. Jaf loves spaghetti and meatballs, and it’s his go-to meal for lunch, dinner, and probably even breakfast if he had his way!

In my last post I talk about culinary world-schooling, what it is, and how we incorporate travel and the culinary arts into the kids’ world-schooling curriculum. It teaches LouLou and Jaf a lot of things: history of the foods they enjoy eating, culture of the places the foods originate from, and most importantly, cooking, one of life’s great skills.

Here is Jaf’s very simple easy Italian meatball recipe followed by his vlog documenting the process of making the meatballs, frying them, and finally eating them!
