How Do the French Eat Strawberries – Video 🥂🍓

Author: Leyla

Today, I’m going to show you the best way to eat strawberries – with a French twist!

Our friends Jeannine and Pierre invited us over and for desert, surprise! Strawberries and Champagne!

My parents loved it! As for me, I just enjoyed the strawberries, and they were delicious : Jeanine had found some “”mara des bois” – the queen of the strawberries ! I also like “gariguette”.

Strawberries And Champagne Recipe

You’ll also need “du sucre en poudre”, and we like to add “un peu de sirop de coquelicot (poppy syrup)” but it may be difficult to find outside of France…

And of course, “une ou deux bouteilles de champagne” !!!

I eat just the strawberries, but my Mom prefers the juice, I wonder why….

Can You Understand Today’s Spoken French?

It’s not just slang. The French everybody speaks in France today is NOT the overly enunciated, extremely formal French usually taught to foreigners.
