This week seems to have been dominated by making gingerbread cookies. As part of an "international understanding" class we made zillions of cookies at school to be iced next week for a Christmas party. Unfortunately we ended up giving half of them to teachers who came to watch a demonstration lesson that I had to do so the teacher called me tonight to ask if I would make some more... it's not as if I have anything better to do on a Saturday night!
The good thing about doing cooking in Japanese primary schools is the fact that they have all the official looking aprons, hats and masks that they have to use for serving their school lunches. Very professional! Of course like everywhere in the world the teachers found it difficult to leave everything over to the students and got very involved!
