Students reclaim home-cooking

Students reclaim home-cooking

Discovering the art of fast, healthy, tasty cooking using seasonal ingredients and a minimum of utensils and cooking, such were the objectives of the cooking workshop proposed by Strasbourg aime ses é and the Vrac Association (Vers un Réseau d'Achat en Commun) on Thursday 23 March 2022.

In the superb kitchen of the Amitel Residence, at 8 rue de Soleure, thirteen students learned to cook two recipes, one savoury and one sweet, which we are sharing with you:

- For the savoury one, the leek is honoured. Often disliked, with a strong and particular taste, it knew how to put everyone in agreement with this very simple recipe of Pita cooked in the pan!
- For sweetness, it was the chocolate spread that made the students melt!

Savoury recipe: pita with leeks


- 250g flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 200g leeks
- 60g olive oil


1.    In a bowl, mix the flour, salt and pepper.

Add 160g of boiling water, mix with a tablespoon, wait a few moments then knead with your fingers. Gather into a ball and knead firmly until the dough becomes homogeneous, sticky, but soft.

Divide the dough into 8 equal balls, cover with a clean cloth and leave to rest for 20 minutes.

2.    Remove the ends of the leek, slice it very thinly and rinse with cold water. 

Place in a bowl, pour in the olive oil and mix

3.            Knead the balls of dough a little to loosen them.

Lightly flour the work surface and roll out the first ball into a disc using a rolling pin. 

Cover the entire surface with the leek.

Roll the dough into a tight ball, then roll it into a snail. 

Roll out the snail with the rolling pin to form a thin cake.

Heat a frying pan over medium heat, place the patty in it and let it brown for 5 minutes on each side. Repeat the operation for each cake.


Sweet recipe: homemade spread


- 250g sugar
- 250g butter
- 50g dark chocolate
- 2 eggs 
- 7cl milk


1.    Put the milk and sugar in a saucepan and make a syrup

2.    Add the chocolate and butter to the pan and mix well.

3.    Add the eggs, beat well and put in a pot.

4.    Leave to cool and put in the fridge.
