Grundtvig Learning Partnership

Posted on

I have been very lucky to be chosen to go to Portugal next week with two volunteers from The Manchester Museum. It’s part of a European project called ‘This is us! Our place, our culture!’ 

The themes are ecology and culture, and we are really looking forward to visiting Freixo Palace (below), Lipor recycling plant and a local wine cellar.  The three of us will be meeting staff and volunteers from the other project countries involved.  We are going to take salt and vinegar crisps for them to try!

    Why salt and vinegar crisps?

    Because we have been invited to bring food from our country, and when I was in France last year there were no crisps of that flavour. its also a bit like salt and vinegar on fish and chips, but that dish won’t travel very well. They had bolognaise and paprika flavour crisps. Other ideas are Lancashire cheese, toffee and bakewell tart.
