This term the elective French classes have mastered their skills at creating and baking galettes and croissants.
The traditional galette chosen was a savoury crepe that has its origins in Bretagne on the west coast of France. Year 9 students created and cooked galettes with egg, cheese and ham.
The Year 10 class displayed their boulangerie skills by carefully rolling and shaping their perfect croissants. Once baked, these were consumed with delicious jams and nutella.
An interesting fact is that the croissant actually originated from Austria in the 13th century. This cultural cooking element has been a positive addition to Elective French at SJC in 2021.
