Well since I had no chocolate and we are on a nutella break- and by the way I like my goûter with unsalted butter spread on the baguette first then the milk chocolate - I went for mexican cream and raspberry jam. I heat up the jam in the microwave for a couple seconds to loosen it up. "Alternatives include a cake from the local delicatessen, a biscuit, even fruit if you have compliant children." (the previous quote was brought to you by the food pyramid) As far as I can tell there is an alarm clock built in to the heads of children that rings at 4pm to remind them it is time for a goûter. Any other meal can be delayed indefinitely with no consequence but the danger of missing a goûter is simply not to be considered. Well it must be the same for little New York kids as well. You can see the 'flurry' in which this was prepared....hardly a clean presentation.

A goûter (pronounced goo- tay) is the snack that all children in France have at 4pm. Believe it or not this is a very popular afternoon snack among French children, a chunk of baguette with a bar of chocolate in the middle! If that seems excessive, get hold of a jar of Nutella - chocolate spread - as a good alternative. Every single person in almost everywhere is familiar with Nutella.
