Chocolate Mousse and Croquembouche: Year 8 Language Dinners
Our Language dinners are an important way for students to learn and experience the Italian and French cultures. Students have an opportunity to taste some of the authentic dishes of the country and enjoy an evening out with their Language friends.
This week, Year 8 students studying Italian and French enjoyed meals together in two different locations. Italian students were treated to a traditional meal at Numero Uno Café in East Fremantle on Monday evening, while French students enjoyed a three-course dinner held in the Community Room at the College on Tuesday night. Both evenings were a great success and the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Here are some reflections from the students:
The Italian dinner was a great night for us as we got to experience a night in Italy. A highlight was the raffle our teachers organised for us. We were very grateful to be given this opportunity and will treasure the memories. Grazie! Niamh Roberts and Mia Brodalka
We really enjoyed the chocolate mousse and the croquembouche. The French onion soup was interesting, but fun to try. Jessie Speers and Montana Da Silva
The food was absolutely amazing, especially the gnocchi, and we got to socialise with our friends. It was a fun night. Evlynn Biju
It was really great to catch up with my classmates over some amazing Italian food. Kate Perejmibida
Reflecting back upon the French dinner, we loved being able to experience the colourful French culture through tasting the diverse range of courses. The dinner started off with a French onion soup accompanied by a slice of baguette with butter. As classic French music played in the background, the night progressed to the main course: Poulet Cordon Bleu (crumbed chicken with ham and cheese) with salad and a Gratin Dauphinois (potato bake). We finished off the night with the dessert course consisting of a decadent chocolate mousse and a truly mesmerising croquembouche. Ella Blazevich and Scarlett Huston
The Year 8 French dinner was a great opportunity to socialise and experience authentic French cuisine. The night was not only an opportunity to connect and try real French food but to create some amazing memories. Nishi Jayawickrema and Sascha Finlay-Collins
The gnocchi was outstanding, and the gelato was very yummy and creamy. We enjoyed sitting with different people and the free dress aspect was really good as well. Eva Petkovic and Grace Foster
