Bringing a bit of Home to France
Everyone knows that Bastille Day is a French holiday, but on that morning we snuck some American culture into the kitchen. As an attempt to repay our host mother for being so kind in cuisine, Georgia (my roommate) and I taught her how to make pancakes.
Anita, our host mother, has never had a pancake in her life yet the first one she made was the best out of all of ours. The following days she made us pancakes for breakfast before classes and I’ve got to say I enjoyed it a lot more than I should have. I don’t know if it’s the concept of eating familiar food in a foreign country or the deliciousness of the food, but seriously- wow.
