You know France. You’ve seen pictures, you’ve watched movies, you’ve probably visited, and maybe you’ve even lived there for a while. In one way or another, France has left a mark on you, and you want more!
🎧🎤That’s where our new podcast Baguette Baguette comes in.
🥖Thierry is an American who has been living in France for so long that he’s wondering if he isn’t more than 50 % French now!
🥖As for Marie-Haude, well she is French, 100% !
Over the years, we’ve noticed that knowing France and spending some time here is way more than eating the cheese and visiting the Eiffel Tower (even though both are not to be missed).
So we have listed all the things that, to us, form the authentic French experience.
Things we eat, things we listen to, things we watch and things we do, you name it!
🎤We created this podcast that explores the unmissably French lifestyle, culture and food to invite you into discussion about things we looove about life here.
Come and listen to our first episodes, which are to air in January 2022.
When you say ‘France’, chances are most people will think ‘cheese’.
One goes with the other! Some cheese, a glass of wine and a fresh baguette, it is like the French Trinity. Tasting cheese might actually be on the top of your list of things to do when visiting France. At least it should be! For this last episode of the season, we wanted to share our very own “cheesy” thoughts and experiences.
What is it like to discover French cheese for an American? And how about when you’re French, born and raised amongst all this cheese? Is Cheese Etiquette a thing?
French Cheeses are sometimes weird, often stinky, and almost always excellent. There’s literally nothing like it.
It is so French. And so wonderful!
Warning: you just might get hungry by listening to this episode! Check it out right now and join us on Instagram to tell us what you think about French cheese!
Un Air de Famille - a masterclass in French cinema
When you watch a French movie, it might happen that you do not quite get exactly what’s going on. Or the film makes you somewhat uncomfortable. And maybe you have a good laugh.
With this movie, you will experience all of the above.
Un Air de Famille is still to this day considered a masterpiece in French cinema. Directed by Cédric Klapish, written and starring Agnés Jaoui and Jean-Pierre Bacri, with Catherine Frot and Jean-Pierre Darroussin , it certainly has star power! So most people have seen it, and those who have not, have probably heard of it. If you stay long enough in France, there is no way you can ignore its existence!
Cringy yet funny, embarrassing yet touching, nonsensical yet to the point, this movie is certainly memorable. And so French! To find out how and why, listen to this new episode!

Crêpes! They might be the n°1 homemade snack here in France. And if you can’t make them yourself, don’t worry: you can find them… EVERYWHERE!
In today’s episode, we discuss the delicious crêpe. The one French meal that can be served as street food, that has dedicated restaurants (the very popular crêperies) and yet, that anyone can whip up, in no time at all, for that lazy Sunday afternoon. Crêpes are an absolutely fascinating experience and a must if you live in France. Even you haven’t tried a real French crêpe yet, make sure you do next time you come over!
But what makes it both so popular and so French? Which is better, sweet or savory? What is the go-to crepe that you absolutely, positively must order?

Brel, Brassens and Gainsbourg
Yes, music is a universal language. And sometimes songs and singers transcend the language they are sung in and can represent a country and culture. That’s what happened with the three artists we will explore in this new episode: Jacques Brel, Georges Brassens and Serge Gainsbourg.
When you spend some time in France, it is very likely that you will hear a tune of at least one of these three “chanteurs à texte”.
In this episode, we’ll touch on stories and secrets about the incredible lives and careers of these legends. How their music, with its undeniable tone, made a deep mark on the culture, in France and even abroad. Et bien sur, the episode closes on our personal playlist for anyone who wants to (re) discover these three greats: Brel, Brassens and Gainsbourg
