Jeudi

  • another busy day - totally absorbing French culture, traditions and tastes. What is there that we now do not know about baking in wood burning ovens! So many children asked and answered questions in French as Bruno the baker did not speak English ! The snail farm was a success! So many facts and again all in French (translation was available!) the children handled the snails and ate them - cooked three different ways with garlic and butter, chocolate and cinnamon and finally with chicory and goats cheese! Our last visit of the day was a wonderful chocolate experience from pod to the finished article, we learnt how to make every type of chocolate imaginable! We had a quiz and decorated our own bars. We are now in full disco mode and there are smiles all round! Bon soirée.

Mercredi

What an exhausting day but so much fun! We have bargained in French at the market, explored the old city and castle at Boulogne before discovering the world of sweet making. We have made tartes au sucre and are about to make our crepes! Lots of playing, running and football/volleyball in between.

Understandably, we will find it hard to sleep tonight - the anticipation of snails!
