School Food Technology trip to Normandy
With its healthy gastronomic reputation and close historical ties with Britain, it’s no surprise that Normandy is such a great destination for groups studying Food Technology.
Visit a snail farm to learn all about this French delicacy and even get to taste one yourself. You can also visit one of Normandy’s beautiful little market towns where you can buy fresh produce; or visit a traditional French bakery where you will learn about the bread making process and get some hands on experience!
