How to Become a Chef in Europe
The aim of the eTwinning project “How to become a Chef in Europe”, which was initiated by the school and supported by the European Commission, was to pick up young people’s interest for cooking and new media. About 140 future chefs of seven European countries used the project’s website in Twin Space to work together on interactive tasks. English was used as lingua franca. The young cooks exchanged information on their different training courses, presented themselves and their work places, discussed about their plans for the future and communicated in online conferences. A special highlight was the so-called cooking carousel: a typical nation / region product was sent to a partner class where this ingredient was unknown and had to be used in a new recipe created by the recipients of the product. This way new European recipes were created, documented, cooked and tested. The project combined the use of English in a professional context with the application of IT skills in a very convincing manner.
