English cookery or French cuisine?

Having shared photographs of Christmas decorations and customs with our Parisian ‘twins’, we have now moved on to a new topic for the French twinning project: Food!

We currently have a display in Church Street Library of famous French recipes, such as Beef Bourguignon, Crepes Suzette, French Onion Soup, Tarte Tatin, Ratatouille and Quiche Lorraine. Customers are able to take them home as they are all available in leaflet format.

In a couple of weeks, we will exchange personalised recommendations with our twin colleagues in Paris. Here’s an example of one Michaela’s favourites, with instructions in both English and French:

Michaela's Cheese and Onion Pasty recipe 

They will all be displayed and copied for the public.

In addition to that, we plan to hold two workshops with our English Speaking Club students about writing recipes. The Club’s recipes will also be sent to Place des Fetes library. In the meantime, Bibiotheque Place des Fetes is creating a book of French recipes with original etchings from their customers and we’ll have the pleasure to display it in our library.

So if you fancy trying something new and tasty, pop in to Church Street Library in the next few weeks for inspiration!
