First Time Trying TRADITIONAL FRENCH FOOD in Paris France! OLDEST Bakery in Paris

  • Published on Feb 2, 2019
  • I went to Paris a long time ago, but I thought I'd come back and do a proper food tour! On this food adventure, I ate some amazing pastries, and one of my favorites was the pistachio escargot pastry, but I still love the original flakey and buttery croissants. At Chez Fernand, you'll have some of the riches foods there like the legendary Boeuf bourguignon defiantly get that because the beef is incredibly tender. I had the best soufflé at La Cuisine de Philippe you can get a savory one and when you need something sweet you can get the chocolate soufflé. If you want something cheesy, go to Pain Vin Fromage, it's a great experience because you get to cook your cheese and meats on a mini stove.

    I was just smiling and nodding and humming the entire time you were describing the texture of the croissant
    The crunchy "crrr" when you break the croissant is one of my favorite sound in the world
    Thanks for everything, it was super satisfying
    Plus the way your entire face lights up when you taste good food is adorable

    I am French and I never ever thought of cooking the jam during a raclette... You just opened my mind to new possibilities.
    I mean, I cooked bacon before, but the rest is usually eaten raw, as it is dried meat.
    God, you make me want to eat raclette in summer... Goodbye Summer Body. T-T

    As a french man I am so insulted about how u had raclette. Why did you grill the meats. They are cured dry meats you eat them by themselves. The raclette fromage is eaten with potatoes or bread

    What's up France ? Month ago +1

    A little guide for people interested in French food.
    Escargot pastry = Pain au raisin = "Raisin bread" (it's not bread though, it's a viennoiserie = pastry)
    [this bakery actually make special ones, the traditional are just with raisin]
    Chocolate croissant = Pain au chocolat = "Chocolate Bread" (for the most part of
    , Chocolatine (in South of France), Petit Pain = "Little Bread" (In some part North of France) (it's not bread though, it's a viennoiserie = pastry)
    Ali Baba: is most commonly called in France, Baba au rhum.
    Crêpes: we usually put jam, chocolate, sugar&lemon, just sugar, honey and also you can put confiture de lait (milk jam), crème de marron (chestnut cream), gelée de coing (quince jelly) on it, but you can put whatever you want. There is a savoury version as well, usually with buckwheat flour but even with this type of crêpes you can put savoury things on it, most common are ham, Emmental cheese & egg, but you can put whatever you want. (Also super expensive crêpes). In France it's not uncommon to do "Crêpes Party" with your friends and family, during this, you only eat crêpes, small ones or regular size.
    Macaron: did you know? While most foreigners are obsessed with macarons, French people don't eat it very often and usually eat more pastries and patisseries. Macarons are almost treated like a candy (it's not but it's very sugary). Also, Macarons and Macaroons are not the same things.
    Raclette: it's a dish from Switzerland but widely eaten in all of the Alps and after that, it spread to the rest of France. Like said in the video, for the traditional raclette, you have the whole wheel of cheese that the restaurant melt for you to put on your potatoes topped with delicatessen (you can eat it with little pickles and little pickled onions). Because there are already potatoes in this dish we don't really eat it with bread and we don't eat this with our hands but with cutlery. Usually, if you put your cheese on the delicatessen only, it's because you ran out of potatoes. Here it's the at-home raclette that you have, most people have this type of raclette device at home but bigger ones (family size). Also, don't grill delicatessen, apart for bacon (and maybe jambon blanc/white ham), don't grill it. Things like saucisson and viande des grisons, every jerked meats are not meant to be grilled.

    About the raclette, we don’t usually grill the meat (mostly pork meat called « charcuterie » because it has been marinated in salt for month and that is how it gets cooked.)

    The last meal is called raclette. You're supposed to pour cheese on your potatoes, not anywhere else. Melted cheese with potatoes, only with potatoes. You are lucky to be back to the USA alive.

    Notre Dame Cathedral @ 10:29. I wonder if it will be like seeing the original Twin Towers in movies (in) that we will be making mental notes every time we see it. Plans are to rebuild & with now 1 Billion dollars pledged no doubt they will. But it will forever be changed in our hearts & minds.

Our guide took us there specifically for them, I wish I had written down everywhere I ate.. how was your experience with the people. In 2005 as a American my group and even I when I was alone had issues with the locals hearing us talk and just bad mouthing Americans.
