Can you tell us about the baking action?
I contacted the staff from the pastry laboratory Naomi Timisoara and told them about the involvement in the European project and about the activity Danube sparrow. After the description of the activity and showing the pictures from the recipe, the people were open to welcome us. On Friday, they gave us aprons and bonnets and we had acces at sanitized tables. The pupils with cleaned hands stated the activity. During the baking, I explained to my pupils about the nobility of the gesture of giving what they have made. They shared with unknown people but they also tasted some sparrows.
