Baking Cookies on French TV

It's not everyday that the La Mom duo gets invited to bake American desserts on French TV!

On Tuesday, however, La Mom Stephanie was doing just that -baking peanut butter cookies and carrot cake on the France 2 show, Comment Ca Va Bien. The theme was American Superbowl, and in between reportages about football and cheer leading, La Mom prepared dessert for the Frenchies.

Meeting the show's host, Stephane Bern, was a kick, and baking up a storm with the show's chef, "huggy les bons fourneaux" Benoît, was a delight.

The highlight of the day, La Mom must admit, was having sexy French superstar Vincent Elbaz and the actors from the popular film La Verité Si Je Mens stop by for a surprise visit and eat my cookies!

The only downside was that La Mom Allison wasn't available to participate in this amazing experience.

There are so many fun things to blog about, but that will be in the next "behind the scenes" post.

Thanks to everyone at CCVB: Stephane Bern, my adorable cuisine sidekick Benoît Chaigneau, Janane, Valentine, Cédric, François, and the lovely staff behind the scenes (especially Perrine) for welcoming La Mom so kindly to the set and not spitting out my cookies! And merci to my friend, K, for coming with me to the studios for moral support.
