We visited the International School housed in the magnificent Ducal Palace of Colorno. Every year about 2000 students, coming from different parts of the world, attend the training courses of Italian cuisine for future chefs and someliers.
The students enjoyed the informative and hands-on demonstration class for cooks and could explore the most important parts of the school: the classrooms, the library, the kitchens, the cellar, the restaurant.
The first of december the pupils found an advent calendarin the hall. it was made of christmas socks full of spices and food. a
funny sensory pattern (touch and smell). Twice a week the children also found a message. On 19th of December they found a recipe for a spicy drink and all the material to make it and drink it together.
Having seen the play “Gretel and Hansel” by Teatro delle Briciole, the teachers with the five-aged pupils realized a gingerbread
house. The three and four aged children realized in the meanwhile the frontdoor of the house. All the project have been decorated with
candies and chocolate. After that, we ate everything together.
