Maxime - Art & Culture

Maxime - Art & Culture

Bonjour, my name is Maxime. I obtained my name because my grandmother always took me to Maxime’s in Paris for my birthday, always in the company of her best girlfriend! When I was fourteen years old, I was already enamoured with their Parisian chatter. Now, when with friends, I know everything about the art of invisible make-up and light cocktails! The Parisian really has a very distinct character: she’s surprising and interesting. And she’s so feminine! As for invitations, it a real task: each day Paris offers new exhibitions, previews and vernissages. With a Parisian, you absolutely have to be in the right place at the right time!

Parigi, lo sanno tutti, va girata a piedi. Non c'è niente di meglio che girovagare per la città, senza curarsi troppo di avere una meta precisa. Si può decidere di andare a dare un'occhiata alla Défense, il più moderno dei quartieri cittadini, oppure di visitare i vecchi quartieri, come Saint- Germain-des-Prés nel 6° arrondissement….

French is strange, you may be able to read it well but when you get to France you can't watch french tv or have a conversation with a neighbour! So, listening to French language songs can be very helpful with learning the French language. What the song says is more important than what the song sounds like. So French song is an excellent pedagogique way to learn, try hear with Yves Montand song, A Paris…

Every year, numerous exhibitions, sometimes of international origin, are hosted in the main museums of the capital: below is a selection of the unmissable events of the 2020 season.The success of the cultural offer in Paris is now a matter of fact...

You, who have always wanted to know we Parisian women live, who are so admired for our attitude and style, take a ticket for “ Oh My God She's Parisian!”. A jubilant show not to be missed in Paris. The only one-woman show in English made by a real Parisian woman about her life in Paris! A hilarious crash course on the "real" Paris.

The bridges in Paris are much more than just a way of getting from one bank of the Seine to the other; they’re a distinct part of Parisian life. Each one has its own story, atmosphere, and life . . . like all Parisian women. I love and adore them. Here’s a little song I’ve written for you.

Every year, numerous exhibitions, sometimes of international origin, are hosted in the main museums of the capital: below is a selection of the unmissable events of the 2019 season and an overview of the 2020 season. The success of the cultural offer in Paris is now a matter of fact...

My friend Nick, from New-York asked me about French Oysters… I could talk for hours about this, but lets do shortly. First of all, my point of view is: if many countries produce lots of wonderful oysters, no country in the world can offer a more complete oyster experience than France! Getting a French oyster in France means that it is served up along with a boat load of savoir vivre, backed by lots of cultivation savoir faire and national pride, all in a setting of immense cultural wealth. Regardless of how the service might be… no doubt ever exists in the mind of the French person serving you that you should feel privileged to be served the finest oysters in the world…

On July 14, the French National Day reaches its peak in Paris.

On the occasion of the French National Day, the traditional fireworks display offers an exceptional firework display each year from the capital's most emblematic monument: the Eiffel Tower.

Ognuno ha il suo modo di essere romantico! Mentre alcuni potrebbero semplicemente divertirsi seduti sulla terrazza del Café de Flore, altri potrebbero preferire passeggiare mano nella mano attraverso il labirinto di strade nel Quartiere Latino o farsi fotografare a Montmartre ...

Il clafouti all'inizio è un dolce francese tradizionalmente a base di ciliegie mascherate, cioè interamente ricoperto da una sorta di pasta flan. Una torta che viene servita calda, un classico delle tavole francese. Qualche tempo fa mi sono divertito a inventare una variante italiana a base di.... pomodorini e mozzarella. I miei amici (milanesi di passaggio a Roma) sono rimasti stupiti: gli ingredienti si combinano magnificamente per dare un piatto gustoso e molto originale.
