Churros in Spanish
Last Tuesday we made churros in the cookery classroom, enhancing our listening skills by following the recipe from a Spanish instruction video . Making the dough was fairly simple for someone who had not made this dish before - like me! The hardest part was probably putting the dough into the piping bag . We had to make sure that there was not too much otherwise the dough would come out of the top of the bag. When fried in oil, the churros had a rich golden colour and tasted delicious. Overall, I enjoyed the lesson a lot and I would definitely take the initiative to make them myself in future.

Escargots: heaven or hell?
Their texture is kind of shrimplike… They are firm and meaty, not soft and slimy… So, what is our Year 8 French students' verdict? It is a 10/10 or "Heaven" for all of them who tasted snails for the first time as part of their end of year enrichment activities. As trivial as it sounds, eating cooked snails without any seasoning or sauce gives you a full experience of the true flavour. They may have a chewy snail texture. Some even said they tasted like chicken or mushrooms and many said that snails tasted delicious. An overall success!
