How do we drink espresso? (There's no "x" in that word.)

That's easy. WITH SUGAR.

That's also a Macaron. A Macaroon (with two o's) is a coconut confection that's very different.

The bad surprise in US was having that "coffee". The only place where it tasted good was IHOP.

j'adore comment les français se battent pour le nom du "pain au chocolat" avec chocolatine et pain au chocolat alors qu'un étranger arrive en france et appel ça croissant au chocolat c'est tout simplement ça, c'est un croissant au chocolat

Author Ted forgetaboutit ( ago)
france and paris are sooo overrated lol ...nothing like in the damn movies XDXD

Author Nicolas Mison ( ago)
Sorry but that's not "chocolate croissant", that's "chocolate bread" ("pain au chocolat") or "chocolatine"...

Author momo glo ( ago)
As much as I'd love to go to Paris, I would hate feeling like the "hated American". Too many other beautiful places and people that are all too happy to share with the world.

Regret, I've been to Paris twice, no croissant.

Don't know what we call an "american coffee" ? With a lot of water lol You just drink a real coffee. Welcome to the original taste :)

Author Short Legs ( ago)
Macaroons are made of coconut and does not have any French origins. But Marcarons are French and those are the ones you are eating in the video. There are different foods with similar names.

Chocolate crossiant is called pan Chocola

Author xMarkbom ( ago)
Coffee is Italian or American style... xD french people drink Italian coffee or espresso

Author KaySan666 ( ago)
Haha i think the lady at the counter probably meant "americano" that is pretty much the european version of "simple black coffee" espresso (not expresso) is the pressure brewed small cup of coffee that you have there.

Author Chloe BubblySoup ( ago)
For the baguette, you need to add butter and bonne Maman brand strawberry preserve (confiture)....yum !

Author lusciousleo1971 ( ago)

what you had was a Macaron, not a macaroon... theyre two different things....

Author athena7793 ( ago)
espresso should be had on the spot. a coffee shot only has a half life of 30 secs

Paris-Brest is not "parisian", it's typically "breton"! So, very "heavy". haha

How can it be both tender and chewy?

Fun fact: Croissants aren't french. They're from Austria.

Hey, you!
Love your videos and, since I'm from (and in) Paris, I was particularly interested in this one, and I have a few things to say. First, you need to realise that, when Parisian bakeries get noticed in the press or because one of their products won a prize, they start receiving a lot of tourist attention, which in turn tends to influence the type of products that they showcase. This can sometimes lead to "innovations" that aim to catch the foreigner's eye, but stray away from "The Sacred Path" of authenticity. Lol! For example, your macaron "montage" is an attempt to merge the heavenly-and-world-famous macaron with the ever-so-gracious shape of a less-renowned pastry called Religieuse. Next time, you have to taste the REAL THING : a montage of two creamy puff pastries, with the same shape, but covered in CHOCOLATE (see what you missed, now? I know you love chocolate). This pastry was meant as a tribute to a group of nuns who sacrificed their life to defend their convent during the revolution riots. Same logic for what they blasphemously sold you as a Paris-Brest. (I have to say, this one is less funny to me : The Paris-Brest is a Sacred Thing gifted to humans by God himself, on a day when He was in a very good mood.) But because the name and shape of ECLAIRS are what tourists come for, they sacrificed the lovely round shape of my favourite pastry to the altar of big money. The good news is I'm not bitter because they seem to have at least respected the golden rule : light, delicious praliné cream. The bad news is normally, there's no chocolate, which is why it seemed overly sweet when you tried it. On this one, I feel that they did you wroooong! Another thing that I liked in your video is your taste-test of the baguette. Made me very proud. because it's really as simple and as awesome as that. If you want the holy trinity, you can always have a good fruit jam, butter and coffee. Try it and see if the biterness of the coffee is not tamed by the buttery and sweet mixture gracing the bread. Better yet : try dunking it! Same principle for croissants (at least two, my friend!) and coffee. You need some jam on them, or some good sugar in your coffee. And you need to dunk! Let us (Parisian fans) know when you plan to come. In the mean time, keep up the good work and take care of yourself!

What kind of heresy is that ? Chocolat croissant ??? No, no, no, does not compute ! It's Chocolatine, do not believe those primitive saxons who say pain au chocolat or croissant au chocolat.

We'd rather see the food and you behind the camera

Author Sophie Montfort ( ago)
Very sweet ! But really, we never eat éclair or Paris-Brest or macaron for breakfast !!! They're desserts!!!! As for croissant and other " viennoiseries " we usually save them for thé week-end. Weekday typiczl french breakfast is baguette with butter and jam. Some people, like myself, eat cheese or ham aswell.

Mikey you are Magnifique---love your selections!

I love dumping my croissant (plain one or with the chocolate) in the coffee. it made me laugh to see you ask how we can drink it, most espressos I don't like either...
what I like to is to cut open a plain croissant and add cheese and ham and then put in the oven a few minutes (microwave will get the thing a bit soggy). put some béchamel inside too if you can ;)

all the sweetness of the espresso goes with 15-20 seconds max. it needs to be drunk quickly or it tastes like crap.

Yeah I've heard so many French horror stories of how arrogant and rude the French can be. So much that I think I'll just laugh if and when it happens to me. One of my art teachers is French and definitely has a strong personality and will give me looks like I'm crazy at times for asking questions or trying to be nice. I think they're re just overly emotional.

Author Mary Therese McCool ( ago)
Mike, you could easily make eclairs or Paris Brest at home. Very easy dough!

Author The MagicCollector ( ago)
hey Mike, as I am french myself I must appologise for the parisien pricks, arrogance in that city is just everywhere and especially tourists and strangers are treated like intruders. if you really want to have some amazing food along with lovely people just come to my city Saarbrücken in Germany. It is pretty close to the french border and we can get as good croissants as in Paris and we have amazing grilled stuff as well. We got even a airport around here, so if you wanna come, just tell me and I would be pleased to show you my lovely hometown. Saarbrücken has around 200.000 inhabitants but you can literaly see everything just by walking :)

wheree the cheese at??

Author mirrorsedgy ( ago)
yeah the french really don't like americans in particulair, you speaking american to the lady behind the counter in the bakery showed that, not your fault though :)

American coffee is more like a 'normal' coffee for northen Europeans and Americans and not as strong as espresso.

Author Malon2006 ( ago)
I was expecting that reaction when you had the espresso, it way more bitter than American coffee.

Author Ivan Diablo ( ago)
chinese food is varied but not as good as he says it is.........
