Yes, that’s butter next to that cup of coffee. And it’s gonna get mixed in. Trust us. THIS IS GOOD.

No no no no no. Didn’t you hear the recent segment on NPR about Americans eating more butter? They interviewed a French guy and when they asked him about this American “trend” of putting butter in coffee, he said the French would never do that. What they do instead (and I’ve seen DD do it countless times) is butter their tartine or baguette and then dunk it (plonger) in their coffee.

“It is a grave error to assume that ice cream consumption requires hot weather.” —Anne Fadiman, born today in 1953

Preach. 
This is especially relevant since the hot weather seems to have left Paris.

You know it’s true, so you might as well embrace it: The French are just better at life.

More often than not, these lists are kind of lame. But this one is all about French food and I can’t seem to find fault with it.
