Week 3 Day 5: Harvest and Appetizer Party!

Today was harvest in the garden and more traditional French cooking! In the morning, the campers harvested vegetables, herbs, and fruit from the garden. It was great to see all the wonderful produce that stems from all that hard work! The campers harvested swiss chard, kohlrabi, turnips, beets, raspberries, fresh thyme, basil, and spinach.

After the garden, the campers headed back up to the kitchen to finish cooking for French week and the appetizer party! For lunch, the campers made Alsace Flammkuchen, a rich, decadent thin crust French/German style pizza with bacon, onions, and creme fraiche. They also prepared a simple, creamy pea salad using fresh tarragon and chives. After lunch, the campers finished off their recipes for the appetizer party. They prepared chocolate mousse using espresso, French cheese Grougeres, and traditional Ratatouille using eggplant, zucchini, garlic, and tomatoes. It was great to sample and taste all the delicious French food made this week at the appetizer party. Cheers to another great week, campers! Bon Appetit! friday camp 022 friday camp 023 friday camp 024 friday camp 026 friday camp 027 friday camp 029 friday camp 030 friday camp 031 friday camp 034 friday camp 035 friday camp 036 friday camp 037 friday camp 038 friday camp 039 friday camp 040 friday camp 041 friday camp 042 friday camp 045 friday camp 046 friday camp 047 friday camp 048 friday camp 049
