Presentation


It was the first time we have supervised a Comenius 1 work group concerning specific
topics in the field of catering. However, it has been a pleasure to work with and link the
ideas of the students who have had the chance to participate in this experience.
Nothing was established a priori, and nothing was fixed rigidly. The best thing about
the project is that the entire work was carried out creatively depending on the interests
and self motivation of the students taking part in the project.
So it doesn‟t really matter to us if the work has a few defects in its written form or oral
exposition. Our most important aim was to get the students to speak the foreign
language in meaningful and authentic contexts and avoid translation from their mother
tongue.
This was made possible because of the reciprocal exchange between students in the
hosting families, which offered them the concrete opportunity to practice English and
French in the daily routine of the host country. Everyone was able to learn something
new from this experience, therefore enriching his or her cultural and social background.


E‟ la prima volta che partecipiamo come responsabili ad un progetto di lavoro nell‟ambito del Comenius, tanto più riguardante
argomenti specifici del settore ristorativo-alberghiero. Tuttavia, è stato un piacere lavorare e coordinare nelle idee i ragazzi che hanno
avuto la fortuna di partecipare a questa esperienza.
Nulla è stato stabilito a priori, nulla è stato deciso in modo tassativo. La bellezza di questa esperienza è che il tutto si è composto in
modo vivace e dal vivo a seconda degli interessi e motivazioni degli alunni partecipanti.
Non ha importanza se il lavoro presenta qualche difetto nella forma o nell‟esposizione, ciò che è stato veramente importante, è vedere
studenti muoversi ed esprimersi in lingua straniera in contesti veramente significativi e reali e far loro dimenticare lo sfo rzo del dover
tradurre o pensare in lingua.
Ciò è stato possibile soprattutto grazie agli scambi tra i ragazzi avvenuta nelle famiglie che ha dato loro la possibilità co ncreta di esibirsi
nella quotidianeità della lingua del paese ospitante e in contemporanea in lingua inglese.
Ognuno ha imparato qualcosa di nuovo da questa esperienza ed ha arricchito il proprio bagaglio culturale e sociale.

“Antonin Careme” Secondary Vocational School in Savigny-le-Temple

The institute takes its name from Marie-Antonin-Careme, the greatest French cook. He was born in
Paris. His father left him and he had to work hard and in time he became a cook in the service of the
minister Talleyrand. During his youth he invented great things for the pastry. This school is rich
regarding:

•   the difference at the public which host
•   the quality of the equipes at the teachers
•   gentleness at the personal
•   the atmosphere at wellness inside the school.

The institute is situated in the centre at the most important French town Savigny-le-Temple.
The school consist at two parts: the first with services (secretary, economy) and the other is Hotel
Management School. Every address offers a possibility at work with diploma C.A.P. and B.E.P. which
are like our diploma at third and fifth year at school.
The ambition at the institute is also to grown for recieve the students from the south.
The management sector is looking for the cooks, waitress and receptionist always that why every
student motivated will be able to find his own place at work.

L‟istituto è stato fondato in onore del grande Marie-Antonin-Careme, uno dei più grandi e colti
cuochi della storia. Nato a Parigi fu abbandonato dal padre e senza scoraggiarsi iniziò a
lavorare dapprima come sguattero salendo fino a diventare cuoco al servizio del ministro
Talleyrand. Durante la giovinezza inventò grandi cose per la pasticceria. La nostra scuola è
ricca di riguardi:
• diversità nel pubblico che noi ospitiamo,
• la qualità delle equipes degli insegnanti e la loro formazione,
• gentilezza e disponibilità del personale,
• il sentimento di benessere che regna nella nostra scuola.
Il liceo si trova in una delle città più impotanti Savigny.le-Temple.
L‟istituto possiede due poli: il primo terziario (segreteria,contabilità e vendita) e nell‟altro
alberghiero (ristorazione,sala e ricevimento). Ogni indirizzo offre uno sbocco sicuro sul
lavoro,con i diplomi C.A.P. e B.E.P. i quali corrispondono al diploma di terzo e quinto
superiore della scuola italiana. La nostra ambizione è di allargare la scuola per accogliere
anche gli studenti del sud. Il settore alberghiero ricerca sempre cuochi,camerieri e
receptionist per questo gli studenti motivati potranno trovare ognuno la propria via.

Italian exchange student

                           My name is Lorenzo Vescovo. I‟m eighteen years old. I come
                           from Serra San. Quirico, a small village between Fabriano and
                           Jesi, forty kilometres from Ancona. Now I‟m a student. I‟m a
                           student in a vocational school for Hotel Management and
                           Catering. I am attending the last year.
                           Now I study different types of subjects divided into 3 areas.
                           The first area covers general subjects: Italian Literature,
                           History, Math, Religion, and Physical Education. The second
                           area covers subjects such as: French, English, Law, Economics,
                           Cooking and Nutrition. The third area is a specialised sector.
                           I like all the subjects in this school but I prefer economics. I
                           like this because I can learn some important functions of the
                           market. I am also good in all the other subjects because I like
                           this school.
                           In my free time I like watching TV, listening to music, and
                           going out with my girl friend and my friends.
                           We are five in my family: my father, my mother, and my two
                           brothers. My father is a mason and my mother is a nurse. My
                           older brother Michele is 20 years old and he is also a mason.
                           Nicola, my little brother, is only 10 years old. He is a student in
                           primary school.
                           At the weekend I usually go out with my friends. Generally we
                           go to a pub or cinema.
                           I work in summer. Last summer I went to Rome on holiday for
                           a week, and I also went with the school to Luxembourg for a
                           month.



                                                                                             6
Italian exchange student


                           My name is Lorenzo Casoli and I‟m 19 years old. I come from
                           Ancona, a town on the east coast of Italy, but I live in
                           Falconara.
                           I‟m a student at A.PANZINI, a hotel management school. In my
                           school I study Cooking, Mathematics, Religion, Italian, History,
                           French, English, Economics, Nutrition, Law, Physical Education.
                           My favourite subjects are Physical Education and English
                           because I like the sports while English is very important for
                           travelling around the world. I‟m also good in religion, but I
                           don‟t know why. I don‟t like Economics and Law because I hate
                           my teachers and I hate French.
                           In my free time I like going out and spending time with my
                           friends, I like reading and watching TV, especially
                           documentaries. I like tattoos very much. I do skydiving and I
                           do volunteer work.
                           I go out with my friends every day. I don‟t read every day but I
                           often watch TV in the evening and in the night and sometimes
                           after lunch. I go skydiving at the weekend and once a week I
                           do volunteer work in the ambulance. I like skydiving because I
                           like the adrenaline and it‟s fantastic. I do volunteer work
                           because it‟s very important for me and for the people I help.
                           At the weekend I stay with my friends and I go skydiving. Last
                           weekend I went to the disco with my friends.
                           Last year I worked in May, June and July, but in August I went
                           to Greece on holiday with my friends for a week. In Greece I
                           went every night to the disco and every afternoon to the
                           beach.


                                                                                          7

                           nutrition and English; those are my favourite because nutrition
                           is interesting and English is important for work and for
                           everything!
                           I am also good at math. For me the most difficult subjects are
                           German and Italian,. The subject I don‟t like is economics
                           because I hate the teacher. In my free time I like seeing my
                           boyfriend everyday, I sometimes like listening to music. I also
                           like watching TV and surfing in internet.
                           I like meeting my boyfriend because I love him!!!
                           I like all kinds of music, in particular pop and rock.

                           some dogs, a cat, a parrot, and others.
                           In summer I like going to the beach all the day!!!
                           Last holiday in summer I went to Trapani in Sicily. I went on
                           the beach everyday because there is a beautiful sea! I really
                           enjoyed myself!!



                                                                                              8

                           languages. I am also good at Mathematics, Law and Nutrition.
                           The most difficult subject for me is Economics. I don‟t like
                           Economics because it‟s very boring.
                           In my free time I like reading, sleeping, going to the disco and
                           listening to the music. I like doing all these things because they
                           relax me.
                           My family consists of 7 persons: my father, my mother, me and

                           usually work in the restaurant like a waitress. Last weekend I
                           was in Russia. Last year I didn‟t have a holiday.

Lesson - The Mediterranean Diet

The discovery of the Mediterranean diet is attributed to the nutritionist Ancel Keys. He noticed that
cardio-vascular illnesses, widespread in his own country, were quite rare. In fact, among the population
of Cilento there was a particularly low incidence of the so called "diseases of affluence" (arteriosclerosis,
hypertension, diabetes).
This was a sensational discovery that led American scientists to set up in the 70s a widespread program
of preventative medicine based on the studies conducted by Keys in Cilento. Thus followed the
international success and popularity of this diet consisting of whole and natural foods, essential for the
health of the individual. The basic elements of this diet are cereal (bread, pasta, polenta), legumes,
vegetables, fruit and olive oil.
Normally the word "diet" carries a negative connotation, associated with limited food, or an excessive
increase in "fat" in the body. Instead if we look up at the etymology of the word "diet" in the dictionary,
we find that it originates from a Greek word with the meaning of "life, lifestyle, way of living".
In fact eating is one of the fundamentals of our life and being more aware of it can help us to live better
and longer. Today all doctors agree on prescribing a diet based on a Mediterranean model, that
appropriately divides the daily calories for the different nutrients in order to prevent the beginning of the
"diseases of affluence".

La scoperta della dieta mediterranea è da attribuire allo scienziato americano Ancel Benjamin Keys che per primo, e nell'ambito di un
imponente programma epidemiologico e di uno studio durato settanta anni, si accorse che le malattie cardiovascolari diffuse n el suo paese,
in alcune aree del mondo, in funzione dell'alimentazione, erano molto limitate. Il professor Keys è vissuto quaranta anni in Italia, nel
Cilento dove pure risultava particolarmente bassa l'incidenza delle cosiddette malattie del benessere (arteriosclerosi, ipert ensione, diabete,
ecc.
Una scoperta sensazionale che portò gli scienziati americani ad avviare, intorno agli anni 70, un ampio programma di medicina preventiva,
basato proprio sugli studi condotti da Keys nel Cilento. Di qui il successo internazionale e la popolarità di questa dieta ch e consiste nel
consumo di cibi integrali e naturali, vitali per il benessere dell'individuo. Gli alimenti base di questo regime alimentare s ono soprattutto i
cereali (pane, pasta, polenta), i legumi, gli ortaggi, la frutta, l'olio d'oliva.
Alla parola "dieta" siamo soliti attribuire un significato negativo, associandolo alla necessità di limitare l'assunzione di cibo o di un eccessivo
accumulo di "grasso" nel corpo. Se andiamo invece a ricercare su un vocabolario la derivazione della parola dieta possiamo no tare che
deriva da una parola greca cui si dà il significato di "vita", "stile di vita" o "modo di vivere". L'alimentazione è infatti una delle basi
fondamentali della nostra vita e una sua più corretta conoscenza può aiutarci a vivere meglio e più a lungo.
Oggi tutti i medici sono concordi nel raccomandare una dieta che, sul modello di quella mediterranea, distribuisca in modo ot timale il
quotidiano apporto calorico al fine di prevenire le cosiddette "malattie del benessere".

                                                                                                                                              18

Lesson - The Slow Food Movement


Slow Food was founded in Bra, in the Italian region of Piedmont in July 1986. The international
movement was founded in Paris in 1989 when Slow Food delegations from around the world met in
Paris, where they approved the Slow Food Manifesto.
The manifesto states: „Let us rediscover the flavours and savours of regional cooking and banish the
degrading effects of Fast Food. In the name of productivity, the Fast Life has changed our way of
being and threatens our environment and our landscapes‟.
The manifesto contains a very clear message: Slow Food is a movement for the protection of the right
to taste and pleasure against the tide of standardization of taste and the manipulation of consumers
around the world.
The second point of the Slow program advises you to go slowly, take your time, have a break and find
a friend who can provide food and hospitality. So the snail was chosen as the movement‟s symbol.
With this in mind, Slow Food is working to protect the historic, artistic and environmental heritage of
places of gastronomic pleasure (cafés, inns, bistros). It is also working to safeguard the food and
agricultural heritage (crop biodiversity, artisan techniques, sustainable agriculture, rural development,
food traditions).



Lo Slow Food fu fondato a Bra,nella regione italiana del Piemonte, nel luglio del 1986.
Il movimento internazionale fu fondato a Parigi nel 1989,quando le delegazioni mondiali dello slow food si
incontrarono a Parigi dove approvarono il manifesto dello slow food.
Il manifesto dice: riscopriamo i gusti e i sapori della cucina regionale ed eliminiamo gli effetti del fast food. Nel
nome della produttività la vita veloce ha cambiato il nostro modo di essere e minacciato il nostro ambiente e il
nostro paesaggio.
Il manifesto contiene un messaggio molto chiaro:lo slow food è un movimento per la protezione dei diritti e
testare il piacere contro la marea di standardizzazione e manipolazione dei consumatori intorno al mondo.
Il secondo punto del programma dello slow avvisa che dobbiamo andare piano,prendere tempo, cercare gli
amici che possono fornire cibo e ospitalità. Così la chiocciola è stata scelta come simbolo del movimento.
Con questa mentalità lo slow food sta lavorando al progetto storico,artistico ed ecologico ereditato dal piacere
della gastronomia (caffè,bistrots, inns). Stanno lavorando anche per la salvaguardia del cibo e dell‟ agricoltura
ereditata (biodiversità, tecniche artigianali, agricoltura sostenibile, sviluppo rurale e cibi tradizionali).


                                                                                                                        20
Lesson - The Slow Food Movement

Slow Food has grown into a large-scale international movement, with over 60,000 members in
all five continents. Slow Food's main offices, situated in Bra (Cuneo), a small town in southern
Piedmont, employ about 100 people. They are the hub of a close-knit network of local
grassroots offices in Italy and abroad, the so-called convivium. Over 700 convivia exist in 83
countries; 330 of them are in Italy, where Slow Food boasts more than 35.000 members.
Since its foundation, Slow Food has thus blossomed into an international movement of food
and wine culture and a champion of biodiversity, hence of sustainable agriculture and rural
development. In 1990, the association founded a publishing company, Slow Food Editore, to
promulgate its ideas. Publications focus on tourism, food, wine and agriculture. The company‟s
catalogue now boasts over 70 titles.
They organize not only theme dinners, food, wine and beer tastings and walking tours, but also
participate actively to safeguard or revive traditional agricultural methods and techniques.
Slow Food also organises a number of prestigious national and international events. These
include the Salone del Gusto, the world‟s largest quality food and wine fair, held every two
years at the Lingotto Exhibition Centre in Turin, and Cheese, a major biennial cheese fair held
in Bra.

Lo slow food è cresciuto nel tempo ed è diventato un movimento internazionale,con oltre 60.000 membri in tutti i cinque continenti. Il
principale ufficio dello slow food è situato a Bra (Cuneo) una piccola città nel sud del Piemonte, dove lavorano circa 100 pe rsone. Essi
sono il fulcro del lavoro dei coltivatori locali in Italia e all‟estero, il cosiddetto convivium. Esistono oltre 700 convivia in 83 paesi; 330
sono in Italia,dove lo slow food ha più di 35.000 membri.
Dalla sua fondazione, lo slow food ha trasformato le sue teorie in un movimento internazionale della cultura del cibo e del v ino e un
campionato della bio diversità, quindi nell‟agricoltura sostenibile e dello sviluppo rurale. Nel 1990 l‟associazione ha fondato una casa
editrice,slow food editore,per prolungare le sue idee, pubblicazioni focalizzate sul turismo,sul cibo, sul vino e sull‟agrico ltura.Il
catalogo della compagnia include ora più di 70 titoli.
Non vengono organizzati solo cene a tema,degustazioni di cibo , vino e birra o passeggiate ma l‟associazione partecipa attiva mente
alla salvaguardia e la riscoperta delle tecniche e dei metodi tradizionali agricoli. Slow food organizza anche innumerevoli e venti
nazionali e internazionali. Questi includono anche il salone del gusto, la più grande fiera del mondo per quanto riguarda cibo e vino di
qualità, tenuta ogni due anni al centro esposizioni Lingotto a Torino, e Cheese, la maggiore fiera del formaggio che si tiene a Bra.

Food Survey - Results

On the basis of our research on the Mediterranean diet and the Slow Food movement,
we decided to carry out a survey based on a questionnaire concerning Italian food
habits. The questionnaire was composed 15 questions divided into 4 areas.
The first area concerns general characteristics such as the sex, age and occupation of
those surveyed. In the second part is called “YOUR TASTES”, 5 questions where we ask
how much food is important in life, favourite foods and food they don‟t like. The third
part is called “FOOD DIET”. In this area we determine the frequency of consumption.
The last area we considered is “YOUR MEALS”, where we treated the daily meals.
The questionnaire was proposed mainly to adults and young adults; what emerged is
that food is important for the majority.
While 90% of those interviewed are not vegetarian, most have only tried Chinese food
apart the Italian food.



In base alle ricerche fatte, riguardanti la dieta mediterranea e lo slow food, abbiamo deciso di eseguire un‟inchiesta; così nell‟ambito del
progetto Comenius è stato preparato un questionario indispensabile per capire le abitudini alimentari degli italiani.
Il questionario composto di 15 domande, si divide di 4 aree specifiche.
La prima area è di carattere generale ed è indispensabile per determinare chi abbiamo sottoposto al nostro questionario. Sess o, fascia
d‟età ed occupazione componevano questa prima parte.
Nella seconda parte sono stati determinati i gusti personali nella sezione “YOUR TASTES”; 5 domande nelle quali viene domandato
l‟importanza che il cibo ricopre nella propria vita, il cibo preferito ed il cibo che non si ama.
La terza parte è composta dal “FOOD DIET”; in questa area si determinano le frequenze dei consumi alimentari.
L‟ultima parte determinava i “YOURS MEALS”; nella quale sono trattati i pasti giornalieri.
Il questionario è stato proposto nella maggioranza dei casi a adulti o giovani; ed è emerso che il cibo, per la maggioranza, è
importante.
Il 90% degli intervistati non è vegetariano ed il cibo provato dalla maggioranza di persone oltre alla cucina italiana, logicamente, è il
cinese.




                                                                                                                                           22
