Year 7 Visit to Choco-Story Paris
On Tuesday afternoon for their tutor group outing, year 7 students visited Choco-Story in Paris. They learnt all about chocolate's Mayan origins and how it was brought to Europe by the Spanish. Our guide told them how at first it was only served as a drink, but thanks to the Dutch, it became the solid chocolate that we all know and love today. Students watched a demonstration by a chef of how to make pralines, learnt about the different nutritional values of white, milk and dark chocolate and then got to sample the goods at the end of the tour. They had a little time to purchase some delicious souvenirs from the gift shop before returning to school.
