When I was talking to my Mum who still speaks a bit French recently and realised that the only French words I know (besides „I don’t speak French“ in french) are Baguette, Croissaint and Crepe. Well this was the moment I realised the next #foodfriday should take us to France!Croissant
Yum yum yum! I’ve eaten many many croissants in Germany and several other countries but I can summarize the difference between a normal croissant and a French croissant in one sentence: You don’t need to order butter in France for your croissant. Oh that’s so yum!
You get loaded baguettes with lots of deliciousness all around Paris. Baguettes were a great street food that saved me during the day and saved my budget. ;)
Aaaah my favourite French food! I couldn’t get enough of the super thin pancake served with either sweet or hearty (I rather order the first) filling during my time in Paris.
I wanted to try these sweets for such a long time and when I was in Paris, the Macaron-capital I couldn’t resist! They’re extremely pricey, unfortunately, but also super delicious! I bought a package of 6 Macarons for 5€ at a kiosk which was a true bargain.
This one is real prominent in the Alsace region; however, I’ve never eaten one in France but only had selfmade ones instead. I love them so I’m sure the ones in France are fabulous!
Cafe au Lait
For all the coffee junkies out there. :-)
I love chesee (probably as almost every other person on earth?!) so France was like heaven to me! Camembert, Brie, Chaumes, Coulummiers, Roquefort, … I should stop now.
Mousse au Chocolat, Creme Brulee and Tarte
Whoever invented these treats was a pure genius!
Probably the best sweet bread I know.
Ratatouille, Coq au vin and co
Going to a restaurant for dinner is of course pretty popular in France, sure pretty tasty but unfortunately also pretty expensive. So guess what I didn’t go to any restuarant and kept the joy of having a great Coq au vin for my next France trip.
Anything else I should look forwards to eat next time in France?
Au revoir, Marlena (yey, another French word I know!)
