This afternoon, Einstein and Dyson classes tried many different types of African food and drinks…
Many different flavours were there to be sampled – from very sweet to extremely spicy! As a year group, we tried a range of foods from banana crisps to boiled yams and fish stew.
Leah pulled a very funny face after trying ‘Super Malt’, which is a very popular drink in Africa. “It was disgusting and I never want to try it again!”, she claimed with distain.
However, Joy loved it, “It bubbles and evolves in you mouth…I think it’s delicious.”
Arron enjoyed the spicy rice with vegetables, Royem liked the boiled, salted yams and even though it burned the mouth of Mrs Carter, Lauren absolutely LOVED the spicy fish soup! Also available to the children was sweet bread from Ghana. It tasted very much like brioche and was wholly popular amongst the children.
To wash down this feast (as well as the Super Malt!), was African Fanta – which was similar to British Fanta, but much sweeter, as well as a cherryade and lemonade from Cameroon. All were very popular – we promise that the sugar rush will be gone by 3pm!
Ryan and Priya decided they wanted to try raw yam at the end of our session – which they did…i’m not sure they will again!
