Saint Felicien du Daphine cheese - the epitome of French cheese
There's a little bit of spring in the air with our menu for March. To start with we have Prawn Cocktail. Juicy prawns with a homemade sauce that has a tiny kick of Tabasco, served on crispy, crunchy lettuce. Main course is chicken, roasted fast to keep it moist, and cooked with potatoes mixed with garlic and onion all in the same tin. Finally, a truly induglent dessert for those who are partial to a bit of chocolate. Delia's Hot Chocolate and Rum Souffle served with Chocolate Sauce - loosen your belts...
I apologise for not sending any news for the second half of January. I was in England, experiencing the pleasure of the cold winds after the hot, sticky weather here. And now I’m back to the same.
There was quite a bit of activity during the month. Many schools, ours included, run what they call vacaciones útiles during the long holiday. In many cases this can be sport but several workshops put on classes either of interest or to help improve skills. Very often the maths department will run classes to give extra practice or to push to a higher level. There are always many takers for the various activities. Then there are the pupils who have to ‘recuperate’ failed courses at the end of the year.
