YOU could have been forgiven if you thought that you detected the smell of garlic and and onions as you passed through Winchburgh this week.
For the village primary school has been celebrating its ‘‘French Week’’ all week and that included some exotic food items prepared by professional chefs Benjamin Bel and David Ward with assistance from his wife Sharon. Highlight of the week was Tuesday’s French cafe which featured delicacies such as beouf en doube (ox cheeks) and croque en bouche (a French wedding cake consisting of a tower of profiteroles.) Parents and carers were invited to join the celebrations and a party atmosphere prevailed thanks to an excellent turn-out.
A school spokeswoman said: ‘‘It’s been a very enjoyable week with a range of French-themed activities based on the Curriculum for Excellence.’’
