This week, in Pou de la Muntanya school, in Dénia, the last of the transnational coordination meetings of the Erasmus + KA2 #TastingSchools project has been made. In it, teachers from Kaland Skole from Bergen (Norway), Lugnviksskolan from Östersund (Sweden) and Giacomo Ferrari Institute from Parma (Italy) participated.
After two years of shared work, it’s time to finish this interesting project that has been co-financed by the Erasmus + program of the European Union. During this time, we have developed four thematic blocks: Let’s visit, Let’s cook, Let’s move and Art & Cooking, each with several sections: research, visits to the environment and use of new technologies.
During the meeting, we evaluated the mobility of students and teachers, held last week in Dénia, and we have been working with the booklet that will collect examples of everything we have worked during these months. Also, we worked and discussed about the final report that must be drawn up to send to the Erasmus + National Agency.
The cultural program of the week has included the approach to our culinary culture and the singularities of Dénia as a Creative City of Gastronomy declared by UNESCO.
The sun always shines in Bergen.
Altough our visitors from Parma landed in a blizzard, the rest of the week was sunny.

Kick off #Tastingschools
Wednesday 11th January, there was a great activity at school when the project #Tastingschools kicked off.
Wednesday 11th January, Teachers prepared a large fruit and vegetable market in the main hall, where the students got a good presentation of all 50 kinds of vegetables. It was also an opportunity to smell, taste a bit and take away all the vegetables.
The students from 7th grade had “Taste Workshop” in the kitchen. They presented dishes based on vegetables. Pupils and adults got to taste ratatouille, lime marinated cucumber, beetroot, with blueberries and a green smoothie. Not all students thought everything was nice as well, but all the students tasted everything. The green smoothie was a clear favourite.
On the red room, the project was presented to the students. Participating cities were presented and objectives of the project were reviewed. Engaged pupils asked many good questions.
It was a great day for everyone at school.
