C'est Bon Appetit for French Classes
The extended class period time of Lab Days allowed the French language students of Madame Pope and Madame Shaffer to create the French culinary delight: crepes. Maple Forest, the on-campus residence of the Grier family, provided a fully-equipped kitchen and dining room for the students to prepare and enjoy their crepes.
Students prepared the large, thin pancakes using traditional crepe making methods and tools. Then, students selected from an array of fillings and toppings to complete their dishes. Savory toppings included smoked salmon, cream cheese, shredded Gruyère, and ham. Sweet toppings included strawberries, bananas, Nutella, sugar, and whipped cream.
Host Mrs. Harriet Grier was there to observe and enjoy the crepes and the camaraderie among the French students and their teachers.
