La semaine de la Brioche

This week has been culinary-tastic!!! We had a special guest from France, "Hamid le boulanger" (aka our wonderful teacher Yassine) who came to teach our students how to make brioche.

The PS and MS have been growing wheat seeds and explained to the other classes how flour is made.

On Wednesday, the students of the whole school, by class,  made the dough with a French recipe and the help of "Hamid". It was a difficult task to knead and pull the dough, to have the perfect texture without too much butter but the children did a fantastic job!

On Thursday, the students "built" their brioche by forming 2 big balls and 2 smaller ones. 

On Thursday afternoon, the brioches were baked...the smell is the hallway was absolutely delicious...

The best part came on Friday morning when everybody met in the GS/CP class for a "goûter" with the whole school. 

What a great project it was! Thank you to our very special baker and his helpers!
