Nos Plats Favoris
EC Section 1 - Mme Jean McDaniel
Sections 1 & 2 - Mme Lovelady-Alfonso
Comme plat principal (main dish) c'est la fondue au fromage (cheese fondue) avec du pain (bread) qui me plait tellement (that I like so much) , spécialement pendant l'hiver en Suisse (during winter in Switzerland)!
Aussi en hiver, j'adore boire du chocolat chaud ainsi que mon fils (I love to drink hot chocolat like my son), c'est délicieux!
Enfin pour le dessert, c'est aussi une spécialité d'hiver que je désire...c'est la bûche de Noël (Yule log) which you can get in many different flavors. Here you see une bûche de Noël au chocolat, à la fraise, et pralinée. You can learn more about the history as well as view une recette (recipe) at the website below. Enjoy et Bon ap!"

"Ma cuisine favorite est le fromage français (French cheese). J'adore le Roquefort, le Camembert et la Brie aussi. Avec ça, j'adore aussi les olives. And when I am in France, I eat bread all of the time which is strange because I hardly touch bread in the US. Mais mon plat favori est, sans doute, les fruits de mer (seafood) qu'on trouve dans le sud de France (south of France), en Provence. I love the steamed mussels, shrimp and oysters. But above all, I like French pastries, especially la madeleine! We call it Napoleons but the French would never call it that. So délicieux!"
