Un Dîner à la Française- Day 1
French I- Cultural activities

Un dîner à la française Day 2

Objectives: To select menu items for French meal; to edit budget; to understand how to create the French shopping list; to discuss project.

Before you start, check out which fruits and vegetables are in season. http://www.nrdc.org/health/foodmiles/results.asp?season=23&state=45 .  Using fruits and vegetables in season is important when creating a menu.

1. First go to the HEB circular so that you can have an idea of what items cost.


2. Read over the project. If you have questions, please write them as a comment to this post.

3. FInalize your menu. Start with French Food and Cook. Be sure to copy all URLs into your document to that you can find your recipes easily.  ALL recipes must be approved by me in advance if they do not come from the links I have here. The Food network is not an appropriate resource for this project.

The purpose of this project is to learn about FRENCH meals from FRANCE. Foods from other francophone countries are not appropriate for this project.

I have put together some links that may be helpful for the project. The links specific for the project are at : http://www.iKeepBoo kmarks.com/ Andrea_Henderson /La_Gastronomie/ French_Cooking_ Project  http://delicious.com/AYHenderson/FrenchCookingProject

If you click on TOUR, you can go easily through the links.

The Meilleur du Chef site is in both French and English. There are illustrated recipes as well as video taped recipes!

My general cooking links are at :
