The exchange

The Waunakee students take a minute to pose with the French visitors on Feb. 28, just days before the 18-day exchange ended. From left are Charlotte Hamilton with Mathis Foisseau, Tom Valoggia with his host, Abbie Grommon, and Vivian McCollough with Léo Lassalle. 

Known for their fine cuisine, French visitors to America rarely boast about the food on their travels.

But for one French student who spent much of February with Waunakee High School families, a regional form of cheese was among the top finds here.
