Students in Mrs. Mammola's French 3 Honors course competed to impress a group of judges made up of Carondelet faculty and administration with tasty dishes representing French-speaking countries from around the world. This contest was part of a semester-long project in which the students have been assigned specific countries from the French-speaking world and have been asked to research them in-depth. Two dozen students prepared 12 unique dishes to represent their countries and gave oral presentations in French to the judges, which described and explained the cultural significance of the dishes.
"The most exciting part of the competition was the aftermath, when everyone was trying each other's foods and talking about the struggles they faced while preparing their dishes. I also enjoyed the freedom given to us by our teacher and the kitchen staff to make whatever dishes we wanted," said Kasey M. '19, winner of "Best Dish Overall" along with her partner, Grace C. '18, for their fabulous fondue dish representing Switzerland.
