Eva Green, the Bond girl in Daniel Craig’s first outing as Agent 007 in “Casino Royale” and a good witch in “The Golden Compass,” remembered a “magical” Christmas in Sweden, the birthplace of her father.

“I was in Stockholm for the Bond movie promotion last year,” she narrated. Eva, whose mother is French actress Marlene Jobert, explained, “I just loved it very much because we went to this old town. It was very magical. I expected creatures to come out any second. It was beautiful. They really know how to celebrate Christmas in Sweden—also in Germany. But in France, in my family, we don’t really celebrate; we eat a lot of foie gras and truffles (laughter).”

    She should visit Denmark at christmas time. It’s completely over the top…. But we probably can’t compeed with Sweden, they have snow and lovely nature, and Sweden is just generally much cooler than DK.

    It’s the way to recognize a typical french girl ! lol 🙂
    Truffles and foie gras are in 2 days 😀

    hey i want some truffles! NOW. 😉

  4. Ea Says:

    But foie gras? Are french people born to like it? I tried it once, and I never ever wanna try it again! They have a lot of great things in France, but this is just not one of them.

    Ea: did you try foie gras pate? That is more of an acquired taste. It can also be made into a more sweetened mousse, which many people like better upon first try. Give it another shot, maybe, someday…

    Foie gras and truffles sound appropriately festive to me 🙂

  6. Ea Says:

    I’m not sure, I think it was more mousse-like, than pate-ish. It was more soft, pate is kind of “solid”, isn’t it?

    => Ea
    We can find foie gras sold in round or rectangular block form, the big pieces in jars are the most delicious but they are very expensive
    Foie gras must have a doughy consistency, just like pâté or terrine (but these are other typically French food, I’m not sure that you know what I’m talking about…), it smells poor like socks or feet (sorry but there is no better analogy for this smell), and when we touch it remains on hands as grease
    We eat it with some special bread edges which have a light taste of rum
    The taste is so delicious, and it’s difficult to not spend the party eating a lot of it

    Foie gras also exists in mousse but it’s not as tasty, we can eat it all year with bread just like pâté, not exclusively during christmas

    Tango_down: I think I know what you mean. But I think I’ll stick to your wine, and perhaps a bit of cheese (not my favorite, either)…. Uhh and a bit of absinth, he he 😉

  10. spot Says:

    spot: that article is in Inquirer.net…it’s most probably in the printed issue (The Philippine Inquirer) as well, unfortunately, I wasn’t able to buy the paper…Actually, I’ve been following that column because it had TGC tidbits…Oh, it’s so frustrating…This is the longest piece on Eva I’ve seen on any Philippine newspaper, and I missed the paper…WAAAHH!!!
