Butter Man

Posted by Tom

Yesterday I went to the Mediateque (library) with my school to make butter. It was part of La Semaine du Gout, a week all about food. 3 men showed us how to make butter and we got to taste it as well as some cheese. It tasted lovely. We came home with a goody bag containing ......

  • 2 pats of butter
  • 1 pack of cheese
  • A butter cookery book
  • A butter curling knife
  • A butter knife
  • A book about diary products.
Do you like the funny green hat I had to wear?


  1. I love the green hat you had to wear, I bet you all had a bit of a laugh about the hats at first.

    When my husband goes into food factories he has to wear one on his chin as well because he has a beard!! Bet you're glad you've not got a beard.

    I think you're very lucky to have got such a brilliant goody bag, I would love a butter curling knife!

  2. Hi Tom

    Wow what a great thing to learn at school, lucky you!

    I bet that butter tasted very yummy!

    Now you'll be able to make it at home for your family :-)


  3. Wow Tomatillo! I love the hat; very stylish! It sounds like you had an awesome time. I can't believe you got all those goodies for free. As soon as you learn to make cheese let me know and I will be over to Normandy before you can say 'home-made brie'!

  4. Thanks everyone

    @ Hulabaloo - I think I will be able to say home-made brie a few times.
