The month of July in Airdnua was dedicated to France!!!!!!!!!
We started off the day with a delicious French themed tea break, we had French cheeses served with crackers and grapes.
A lot of us got the opportunity to try a type of cheese that we had never eaten before.
We followed with a French classic at lunchtime…….. Beef Bourguignon.
We learned that this is similar to our own Beef Stew, it originated in Burgundy and it cooked using red wine and garlic, onions and a bouquet garni.
Everyone really enjoyed it and we all showed our gratitude to our chef Barnardo by clearing our plates!!!!!!
The art group decorated the canteen with some French style pictures and flag and it made look very festive.
We also played some traditional French music such as
- La Mer
- La Vie En Rose
- Sous Le Ciel De Paris
- La Boheme
- Le Sud
The music really added to the overall effect. We were able to imagine ourselves sitting in a French café on the River Seine 🙂
