Following on from ancient Rome we are now having an Italian week. First up we watched a travel DVD on Italy from our library.
We will be making a lapbook using this free download from Home School Share and information books gathered from the library along with internet searching.
We'll also be doing some arts and crafts, gardening and lots of cooking. The children got these cookery books from the library and have chosen 4 main meals and 4 deserts/cakes to make.
Today R cooked us tagliatelle with tomato and Parma ham sauce.
L made this torta al cioccolato which doesn't look amazing but is one of the best cakes we've ever tasted. Made from chocolate, sugar, egg whites, butter and a tiny amount of flour, it's really light. The recipe is in "My Very First Italian Cookbook" pictured above.
