This Month’s #BeatsbyFlik: Classical
There are few things that connect with one’s passion like food and music. This year, we decided to bring them together in our program, #BeatsbyFlik. Last trimester, we explored the musical cultures of Country, Pop, Rock and Roll, Jazz, and Broadway. In January, we kicked off the new year with a 1950s-themed lunch, complete with diner fare and Elvis hits. Please join us on Tuesday, February 21st in the Lower School, Thursday, February 23rd in the Upper School, and/or Friday, February 24th in the Middle School for a special Classical-themed meal in the dining hall. We hope to see some dressed up diners enjoying our chef’s finest dishes.
Our Veggie Revolution program focuses on veggies and introduces recipes and new ways to incorporate seasonal fresh vegetables into our diets. This February, we’re taking spinach, a well-known superfood, and showcasing the different ways it can be enjoyed. Be sure to tell your student to grab a sample, as well as a recipe card, for this month’s tasting of Saag Aloo.
This Month’s TF Express Stop: Paris
Our Traveling Flavors program explores different cuisines in order to introduce different cultures to our students and celebrate diversity. This year, we’re taking you on a tour of culinary delight via the TF Express, and our first stop is in Paris. Be sure to stop by the dining hall on Thursday, February 16th for a taste of classic French cuisine, and tweet #TFExpress for a chance to win a prize!
