Le Diner en Blanc Brings Paris to Grier

Le Dîner en Blanc is an annual event that originated in Paris and now takes place in numerous cities throughout the world. Participants are asked to dress all in white and arrive with picnic style food at a secret location that is only disclosed shortly before the diner takes place. French students at Grier reenacted this event on campus by dressing in white and meeting in Nana's Place where Mme. Pope had prepared a tabletop picnic of a variety of cheeses, French bread, and fruit. 
During the meal, Mme. Pope provided an introduction to French cheeses and helped the students find words in French to describe the taste and appearance of the cheeses. For the most part, the students responded Miam miam!, which is French for "Yum yum!"
