Cooking show in space – Level 2

Cooking show in space – Level 2

17-06-2015 07:00

An astronaut onboard the International Space Station made her own cooking show while in space. She recorded herself cooking different dishes with food pouches and the tools available to her in space.

In one video, she made chicken with turmeric, mushrooms, brown rice, and peas. While she heated some food pouches in the food warmer, she opened other food pouches.

At the end of the video, she tried her dish, which she said was not bad for being made in space.

Difficult words: food pouch (a special bag that keeps food together until you open the bag), turmeric (a yellow spice.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you think it is easy to cook in space?
