La Cuisine Française est Délicieuse!

La Cuisine Française est Délicieuse!

LHS French students recently had a welcome (and delicious) break from grammar rules and conjugation by studying French cuisine! Students learned about both haute cuisine of high-end French restaurants as well as the everyday class of street foods available throughout France including worldwide favorites such as baguettes, éclairs, and escargots.  Students also enjoyed learning about more exotic dishes, like the dessert baba au rhum and Mediterranean-style pizza topped with olives, herbs, and anchovies. Students focused on differences between regions, comparing the colder, more refined dishes of the north to the more relaxed, Mediterranean cultural mix of the French Riviera. Student projects involved designing a typical meal-plan comparing American and French foods or creating a storefront for a French specialty store. As students explored a new language and culture, the classroom was filled with vibrant discussions on what to include, how to design and color the project, and even what (un)reasonable prices to include for each item.
