English Gourmet Day

What is the difference between English onion soup and French onion soup? The two soups are very similar, although quite different. Both use simmered caramelised onions. However, the French version always uses beef stock and baguette while the English version uses any kind of stock (beef, chicken or vegetable), with any toasted bread.

In our gourmet days our students continue to learn about the cuisine and customs of other countries, and also enjoy new flavours accompanied by music that brings them a little closer to the country of origin of the dishes they are tasting.

On this occasion they have been able to taste the dishes of our English day while songs by The Beatles, Queen or David Bowie were playing.
