Russia cultural lunch: beyond world cup

The first cultural lunch of the year was to celebrate one of the largest event in 2018: the world cup. The hostess of the event, russia, was the country chosen by the junior group which in addition to make posters the group still contributed by choosing the lunch menu.

Russia is one of the 32 countries that will participate in this year’s world cup, that will take place during the months of july and august. However, it was not the characteristics related to the soccer field that stood out in the presentation, but rather curiosities related to the culture, geography and history of the country. "I found it very interesting, not only because we researched, but also because I was able to learn more. I am very anxious about the beginning of the world cup and now that I know the culture better, I think I will follow the games better, "Says student enzo holanda." during the research, I got the cooking part and most of the things they eat I did not like. But they have several other cool characteristics, the dolls, the reference in ballet, so it was a lot of fun to do this reaserch ", comments the student noêmia ciribelli.

Regarding food, nutritionist natara has the same opinion as noemia, but relied on her experience to bring russian cuisine to the menu to please everyone's taste. "We always have to adapt. Because it's good to know what people eat in other countries, but lunch has to happen. There, for example, they have the "Shashlik", which are different kinds of meat and vegetables on the barbecue stick. In addition to the very different seasonings in the recipe, the barbecue stick would not be suitable to feed the smaller students. So we served meat with vegetables using our own seasoning. It is a way of knowing and experiencing something different.In addition, the cuisine team and the kids chose other dishes. We made cannelloni stuffed with ground meat, which imitates the pasta recipe in russia, russian salad ("Olivier"). We had grape juice and honey bread for dessert, explains the nutritionist.

For the class teacher, felipe noronha, the research was a successful activity. "We presented to teachers natany (teens) and alessandra’s (junior high) groups" and I found it very interesting, because russia is a country a little distant from our reality, we do not know much about it, and with the arrival of the cup students were more motivated, "Concludes the professor.
