On Friday, January 23, 2009, the three Kindergarten classes and their families hosted an Italian feast as a culmination to their three week study of Italy. Each family contributed to the feast and joined their children at noon to indulge in cheeses, meatballs, pasta dishes, fried dough, and more. How did the families create such a sensational feast? Let’s ask the Kindergarteners.
McIntyre Levin’s family brought gnocchi. He says that to make gnocchi “You get ricotta and then you put all the other stuff in and you make the dough. You work the dough and boil it to make the gnocchi.” Carolina Viswanath wants to share her family’s secrets to caprese salad: “You need tomatoes and only one more thing: mozzarella balls. Then you put it in something. It’s a small recipe. My mom made it, but I know how to do it ’cause I’m a good cook.”
Every successful feast ends with dessert. Roi Hananel’s family was happy to bring “the cookies that have the white stuff on them.” Emma Young wants you to know that she had three of them! Clearly, a wonderful time was had by all. Ciao for now!
