French Dinner honors Alsace region
More than 120 Greenhills students and family members gathered recently for a French meal in the dining room in honor of National French Week.
The twist this year? We chose to honor Alsace, a region in the northeast of France, near the German border.
Consequently the meal, prepared by Ann Arbor’s Chef Brigitte Romero, featured a traditional Alsatian dish called “choucroute,” a combination of sauerkraut, potatoes, pork, and sausage. An appetizer was an onion tart, and dessert was a Forêt Noire, a chocolate, cherry, and whipped cream cake most Americans would recognize by its other name, Black Forest cake. It’s named after the forest that grows between Germany and France.
Shawn Bonine once again provided décor, an autumn theme reminiscent of the beautiful scenery of Alsace.
Many thanks to all who attended. Sarah Kennedy, mother of Ty ’17 and Jane ’20, said the gathering was “a great occasion to get to meet and have conversations with other Greenhills parents.”
