On Wednesday we had a samurai lunch with one of our middle school teachers to talk/brainstorm projects involving Feudal Japan. We had authentic Japanese cuisine, including a delicious Nimono (simmered pumpkin) prepared by Ms. Melinson. The recipe can be found here. Ms. Jacobson was gracious enough to let us borrow authentic place settings and decorations that she procured while living in Japan.
If you are a Country Day teacher and want to plan a new project with us, let us know and we’ll come up with a fun theme lunch for you, too (of course we could always meet over coffee or you could just email us).
