Before too long those of us at the table figured out the problem. I dismissed the drink, ordered a Âœ cup of coffee, and filled it with chilled cream. Drat.
My tablemates and I are still baffled and amused to think of three obviously European men, educated in the culinary arts (?), confessing that theyâd never heard that the French mix their coffee and milk.

When I was in France, many years ago, we stayed in bed and breakfast hotels. Breakfast in the morning was crusty bread served with fresh butter and jam, and stong coffee(not expresso)and hot milk served in 2 seperate pots. The propriators showed us how to mix them half and half in the large coffe cup provided. This beverage they referred to as "cafe au lait".
