I ate waayy to many pain au chocolate while I studied in paris years ago… I’ve found some good ones here in the states, but none like the ones in France!

If I had to pick another place to live other than the US, it would be France. And the timing is so perfect to find your post with that silly little bicycle race going on now. LOL

When I lived in Spain I was amazed how everything had a name. Like in the States we would just say “the lemon one” or just point, you know?

We still got our baguettes but it took a little bit of hand gestures and smiles. It was one of my favorite experiences of the entire trip!

Just watched the video with the kids, who loved it, of course. I asked them to see if they could find differences (they noticed the telephone numbers, the time on the parking sign, the way the money was placed on the tray) and similarities (bringing your own bag and how some of the words were familiar: sandwichs, chocolat, tart, citron).

We’re very curious about why one of the desserts is called a religieuse. Lexie’s guess is that if you eat it you’ll think you died and went to Heaven. Is she right?

(Please tell your children “thank you” for the lesson today. And because we’re trying not to be too stereotypical as we “journey” around the world, do kids in France really play croquet?)

We used to get a pain au chocolat on the way home from school everyday, or a tarte aux framboises! Heavenly! And don’t even get me started on the baguettes – bread will forever be changed for you after this, I’m sure of it.

I love French bakeries. The only thing I missed seeing was a mille-feuille. Every time (all of twice) I have taken a bite into one, I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. Mmmm.

I say “our” because my 6 year old daughter is DYING to go to Paris and we love watching your adventures. You inspired us to head to our local bakery for a treat this morning! Safe travels on your trip…

Delicious treats and delightful children.

One last…. “tartelette au citron” not “aux citrons”.

This is a tricky one. We say “aux framboises” because we use many raspberries to make one tartelette. But, with lemon, it’s the juice wich is used to make the tartelette. So, it is uncountable.

Otherwise, the video is really really appealing !

I love all the names of the desserts. Just something also that I learned since living in Bordeaux – Pain au Chocolat is the Northern Term – here in Bordeaux (and perhaps elsewhere in the South of France) they are referred to as Chocolatines. So funny when you enter a bakery here and ask for pain au chocolat and they look at you funny and say – Do you mean Chocolatine?…

reminded me of living in Belgium – if you go again, do try and get the rice tart, they are dreamy!
