Bon Appétit Mes Enfants


Tollbar Academy was transformed into a French cafe for lunch as Head Chef Adrian Wakefield and his Aspens catering staff produced a mouthwatering selection of gallic dishes to tempt the students' palates.

Complete with comic moustaches, the real aim of the theme day was to introduce students to a wider choice of foods. This French Theme Day will be the first in a number of taster days this term for foods from around the world.

Adrian said: "We served a wide range of dishes from bœuf à la Bourguignonne to poulet coq au vin and there was a real buzz around school. For vegetarians, we had cherry tomato, red onion and goat's cheese tartlet. It is all about getting the students to try something they may not have had the opportunity to try before."

All students, including Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College students, had the chance to take part in the day, with the opportunity to try French foods of their choice.
