Gill St. Bernard’s School: The Taste-and-Talk Project



Two dozen students in the Upper School of Gill St. Bernard’s School spent the days of their annual year-end unit exploring new foods, learning the art and science of tasting, and talking about how to accurately convey their experiences. In this four-part series in The Peasant Wife, the student food critics speak out about flavor as well as what foods they tasted and favored during their wide-ranging week of eating.


First up: Sweet Caroline’s Bakeshop, an online bakery that’s the domain of acclaimed pastry chef Carey Bell.
