Recipe Help, Please!
DS (Gr. 4) is finishing up a unit on Immigration. He needs to find an authentic French recipe that he will help prepare and take to school for a World Food Fair type of thing. Does anyone have any suggestions? Something fairly easy, of course. I've been searching the Net and not coming up with anything that's not too complicated. We're supposed to make enough so that the entire class can sample. Help!
Trina, what about crepes? It's a pretty safe bet that his classmates will like them and they are super simple to make. Your ds won't even have to worry about nuts!
coq a van - simple (not totally simple, but)
Pasta Provencale (with bacon) (Looks easy and good)
Galette de banane (with frozen pie crust - banana pie)
Ratatouille - Rapide (This is easy and, even though it has eggplant and zucchini in it, really very good)
Crepe Suzette (forgo the liquors) I've made crepes, and they are really easy
Dessert Crepes with lemon butter
Here's an authentic recipe for dessert crepes, but I have usually used the recipe on the Betty Crocker box or from Joy of Cooking
Provencal Potato Pizza
This is soooo yummy and was in Cooking Light a few years ago. I need to make it again. I think if you made 2, it would be enough for everyone to try.
When Sarah was in 4th grade, she had to a report on a country. She did Finland, since that is where my maternal Grandma's family came from . I made a Finnish bread and when I came in to do my lunch job, I heard all these comments from her classmates. They loved it!
In 5th grade, she had to a report on a state. She picked Maine. Blueberries are a big crop in Maine, so I made blueberry muffins! They were also a big hit, but at least one kid didn't like blueberries!
LOL Eve, that is what I was thinking!
Not sure if you found anything, but I ran across this recipe: French Meringues
If you can just bring something in, then I would suggest croissants or baguettes. However, if you have to COOK it, then those are difficult and time consuming. In that case I would go with crepes. Yum!!
