It was a school-wide treat on February 16th when three dads from Frontenac School got together and prepared fresh falafel wraps for all the students and staff. Head Chef/Dad Kasem Saoud approached the school CLW, Margaret Lapenskie and said he wanted to share one of his family's favourite meals. Kasem asked 2 more dads and working together, they prepared 500 fresh falafel wraps for the whole school to enjoy during our Olympic Celebration Day.
Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern staple made from chickpeas, parsley and garlic. Accompanying the falafel was fresh homemade hummus, also made from chickpeas and spices. The school kitchen was truly a well-oiled machine that day, with falafel being made throughout the day. For many students this was their first time trying this delicious wrap and they really enjoyed the treat. Frontenac School would like to say thank you - "Shukran" to our 3 chefs for spending the day with us.
