The soup bike, you know? The concept is simple. Each participant will prepare his own soup by pedaling… An action that will be offered to the public on December 3, as part of the Telethon, on the grounds of the Simone-Weil high school.
A test day for students
Thursday, November 24 in the professional kitchens of the Simone-Weil high school: the atmosphere and enthusiasm are there. A dozen students from the first section of care and personal service support are there to practice and prepare soups, armed with a vegetable peeler and a knife to dissect a few potatoes, carrots and pumpkins, simple ingredients that will form the basis of a generous beverage.
“It’s the first time I’ve made a soup. In general, I like to make desserts with my parents. Plus, it’s for a good cause,” says Louanne Parisot, 16. Some advice from Amandine Guilbaud, teacher, is welcome: “Be careful with the cooking time of the vegetables”. For Léna Geung-Verchere, 17, very committed to this day of action, “this Telethon is very important. And, in addition, combining business with pleasure in the company of my friends, it’s great! »
And on D-Day? On a bike equipped with a blender, all you have to do is pedal to grind the vegetables previously steamed by the high school students. A healthy, environmentally friendly method of preparation and a hint of exercise. Each bowl of soup will be sold for €1 or 1 simone (local high school currency), with an entry fee of 5 simones corresponding to €5, which will be entirely donated to the Telethon. This activity will begin at 11 a.m. and end around 6 p.m.
