Lunar New Year | nouvel an lunaire

Dear Community of the Collège du Léman,

Once upon a time, nestled in the cradle of misty mountains, a village quaked under the shadow of a fearsome beast, Nian. This creature, with teeth like daggers and a roar that shook the earth, descended upon the village each year, wreaking havoc and spreading terror. But the villagers, resilient and cunning, uncovered Nian’s weakness: its fear of loud noises and the color red.

On the eve of the new year, they united in a bold stand against the beast. They adorned their homes with scarlet banners and lanterns, symbolizing courage and resilience. As the midnight hour approached, they lit fireworks and set off firecrackers, filling the night with thunderous explosions and vibrant bursts of color. Caught off guard by the onslaught, Nian recoiled in fear, fleeing back into the darkness from whence it came.

With the dawn of the new year, the village erupted into jubilant celebration. They feasted on sumptuous dishes, exchanged red envelopes filled with blessings, and danced beneath the glow of the full moon. And so, the tradition of Lunar New Year was born, a testament to the indomitable spirit of the human heart and the triumph of light over darkness.

In celebration of this, the International Dinner was themed after the Lunar New Year and Aisan cusine, please take a look at some of the fantastic dishes served! Thank you to all the increible kitchen staff who worked – as they alwasy do – so increibly hard to make the dinner special!

Best regards,

College du Léman team!

Chère communauté du Collège du Léman,

Il était une fois, niché dans le berceau des montagnes brumeuses, un village qui tremblait sous l’ombre d’une bête redoutable, Nian. Cette créature, aux dents comme des poignards et au rugissement à faire trembler la terre, s’abattait chaque année sur le village, semant le désordre et la terreur. Mais les villageois, résistants et rusés, ont découvert la faiblesse de Nian : sa peur des bruits forts et de la couleur rouge.

À la veille de la nouvelle année, ils se sont unis pour lutter contre la bête. Ils ont orné leurs maisons de bannières et de lanternes écarlates, symboles de courage et de résistance. À l’approche de minuit, ils ont allumé des feux d’artifice et des pétards, remplissant la nuit d’explosions tonitruantes et d’éclats de couleurs vibrantes. Pris au dépourvu par cet assaut, Nian a reculé de peur, s’enfuyant dans les ténèbres d’où il venait.

À l’aube de la nouvelle année, le village se mit à célébrer dans l’allégresse. Les habitants se régalèrent de plats somptueux, échangèrent des enveloppes rouges remplies de bénédictions et dansèrent à la lueur de la pleine lune. C’est ainsi qu’est née la tradition du Nouvel An lunaire, qui témoigne de l’esprit indomptable du cœur humain et du triomphe de la lumière sur les ténèbres.

Pour célébrer cet événement, le dîner international avait pour thème le Nouvel An lunaire et la cuisine aïsane ; jetez un coup d’œil à certains des plats fantastiques qui ont été servis ! Merci à toute l’équipe de cuisine qui a travaillé – comme elle le fait toujours – incroyablement dur pour faire de ce dîner un événement spécial !

Meilleures salutations,

L’équipe du Collège du Léman!

International Dinner – Albanian Food 🍽

Dear all,

Our International Dinner is back and yesterday, we had Albanian food! 🙌

Facts about Albanian food:

  • Albanian cuisine has its fair share of vegetarian dishes. Meats like beef, lamb, pork, and poultry are common ingredients in meals, too. They are, however, not necessarily a part of all traditional Albanian food recipes.
  • Albanian cuisine is primarily based on healthy ingredients such as vegetables, fruit, fish, and seafood, like the renowned Mediterranean diet. Olive oil is the most popular—and by far the oldest, dating from Roman times—cooking fat used in traditional Albanian dishes.

 

Thank you to the kitchen staff! 🤩

Fresh from the Herb Garden! 🥦🥬🥒

Dear all,

Today, for lunch, our students had the opportunity to discover the taste of parsley, tarragon, mint and basil!

It really looks delicious! 🤩

International Dinner – Belgian Food 😋🍽

Dear all,

For our International Dinner, we had Belgian Food! 😋

Some facts about Belgian Food:

  • Belgian fries, not French: Don’t be fooled by the name ‘French’ fries; the origins of this ubiquitous dish can be traced back to Belgium. The misnomer stems from a geographical error during World War I, when American soldiers stationed in Belgium believed they were situated in France (due to the fact that part of Belgium speaks French). When introduced to the delicacy, the soldiers nicknamed these fried potatoes ‘French fries’. Brussels fine array of frituurs have been trying to reclaim their legacy even since.
  • The importance of condiments: You can visit any town or city in Belgium and order frites to be enjoyed while exploring the city. For maximum enjoyment, make sure to find the condiment that’s right for you. Belgian frites are almost always served with a sauce – be it the standard favourites of ketchup and mustard, or a more interesting concoction like andalouse, samurai and joppieaus – but the most traditional topping for Belgians is mayonnaise.

International Dinner – Turkish Food

Dear all,

For our International Dinner we had – Turkish food! 😋

 

Delicious pictures! 🤗

Here are some interesting facts about Turkish food:

  • Spices: The western impression of Turkish food is that it is very spicy. However, Turks don’t just use spices for the sake of throwing in as many flavours as possible. Instead, every dish is prepared to bring out the main ingredient’s flavour instead of burying it under sauces or spices.
  • Dinner: Dinner in Turkish cuisine is the most elaborate meal of the day. The dinner table is filled with a variety of sumptuous dishes because it’s the only time, apart from weekends, that all family members assemble.

Thank you very much!

 

Collège du Léman Team 😊

International Dinner – Bulgarian Food

Dear all,

For our traditional international dinner, we had Bulgarian food! 🥘

 

 

Some interesting facts about Bulgarian food:

  • The food in Bulgaria has a strong Greek and Turkish influence with dishes like baklava and Shopska salad; a cucumber, onion, tomato, white cheese and pepper dish that reminds one of a Greek salad.
  • Traditional Bulgarian food is varied, yet specific to certain regions of the country. In the Thracian Valley, claypot dishes like gyuvech are popular.
  • Fish and seafood are plentiful from the Black Sea coast.

International Dinner – Moroccan Food

Dear all,

Today for our International Dinner, we had Moroccan food. 😋🍽

Some interesting facts about the Moroccan food:

  • Moroccans eat their meals at low round tables, often sitting on cushions on the floor.
  • They eschew the use of utensils and eat with their hands, using the thumb and first two fingers of their right hands.
  • They typically serve flatbread with every meal.
  • They use pieces of bread to soak up sauces and to carry food to the mouth.
  • Moroccans pour their mint tea by holding the pot high above the glasses, allowing the air to mix with the tea.

Thank you very much to the kitchen staff!

International Dinner – Japan 🍽

Dear all,

For our usual International Dinner, we had Japanese dinner! 🤩



Facts about Japanese food:

  • Narezushi, Japan’s original sushi, traces its origins to China. When it was introduced to Japan in the 8th century, it consisted of fermented rice and salted fish. It was mixed with rice vinegar and sake, and laid under a large stone to prevent the growth of bacteria and microorganisms and to keep it fresh longer.
  • One of the most mind-blowing Japanese food facts is meat being a relatively new thing in Japan. Japanese cuisine was heavily influenced by Buddhist traditions. Because the Buddhists forbid the killing of animals for meat, eating meat aside from seafood was almost unheard of.

 

Thank you very much to our kitchen staff! 🙌

  • Peanuts, the primary crop of Senegal, as well as couscous, white rice, sweet potatoes, lentils, black-eyed peas and various vegetables, are also incorporated into many recipes.
  • Meats and vegetables are typically stewed or marinated in herbs and spices, and then poured over rice or couscous, or eaten with bread.

International Dinner – Chinese Food! 🥠

Dear all,

For our weekly International Dinner, we had Chinese Food! 😋

Some interesting facts about Chinese Food:

  • The Healthiest Food Around the World – This is probably the most attracting Chinese food fact. Chinese like fresh ingredients and always try to achieve a balanced portion of vegetables and meat, to provide all nutrition the body needs.
  • Rich Flavours – One of the Chinese food facts is that it is of multiple flavours, among which sour, spicy, bitter, sweet and salty are the most common. Generally, the northern food is salty, the southern sweet, and the southwestern sour and spicy. No matter which flavour you like, you can always find your fond Chinese food.
  • Delicate Decoration – In addition to fragrance and taste, Chinese emphasizes the appearance of the dishes. They believe beautiful appearances can promote the appetite. After being cooked, the dishes are usually set on various plates, shaped finely and decorated creatively.

Wednesday International Dinner! 🙌

Dear all,

For our first International Dinner of the term, we had Belize food! 🌮
It looks so good!! 😜

Here are some interesting facts about Belize food:

  • Fruit like mangos, bananas and limes flavour a lot of Belizean dishes.
  • Belizeans tend to like their dishes spicy, and absolutely worship Marie Sharp’s hot sauce. This hot sauce comes in a range of spiciness, including Mild, Hot, Fiery, Belizean Heat, No Wimps Allowed, and Beware.
  • Seafood makes appearances quite often in Belize cuisine, particularly due to the fact that Belize is a coastal nation. Flounder and barracuda are popular seafood choices
  • Much of the street food in Belize is influenced by its neighbouring Spanish-speaking countries. Tacos, panades (fried corn patties with fish and beans), garnaches (see above recipe), and salbutes (hot, fried tacos) shine as Belizean street food.

International Dinner – Portuguese Cuisine 🍽

Dear all,

Today our students were presented with our usual International Dinner!
And today, the country of choice was Portugal 🤩

We had Rissois, Bolinhos de Bacalhau and Pão com Chouriço!
Delicious 😋

Leaving you with some interesting facts:

  • Second Breakfast is a thing: It is a daily ritual to take a short break with a cup of coffee and a sweet pastry in a place called “pastelaria” (pastry shop). In fact, Pastelarias are part of the furniture in Portugal since work breaks (or any other event whatsoever) are always around food.
  • Despite its humble origins, Portuguese gastronomy is rich because necessity is the mother of invention: The diminutive size of Portugal, a land area about the size of the U.S. state of Indiana, might suggest that there is not much culinary diversity. Nothing could be further from the truth, and you can notice it that if you cross the country from North to South or fly to the islands. There are almost as many types of sausages, bread, cheese, wine, beer, and traditional sweets … as there are geographical regions.
  • There are no two recipes alike: Portuguese recipes have been passed down through the centuries, from generation to generation, by word of mouth. That’s why it is so difficult to find two recipes alike, even for the simplest Portuguese foods and dishes.

We said Obrigada to all the kitchen team! 😊

  • The French Have a special bread law: Yes, the French have a special law for bread which states that homemade bread must be fully kneaded, shaped, and baked at the same place where they are sold.
