Default Do French people eat French Fries and French Toast ?



Do French people eat French Fries and French Toast ? Or is it just
an American myth? Serious question.


Thanks.

No, they eat pommes frites and pain perdue.

Seeing as we're on the topic, it's "pain perdu" (pain being
masculine). In Québec, it's called "pain doré".

Of course, seeing as it is NOT French, the French would prefer if you
would call it Roties anglaises, just as they would prefer that French
letters (or safes) be referred to as Capotes anglaises, French
kissing as Baiser à l'anglaise and French leave as Filer à
l'anglaise, as is proper :-)

Doré? Is it brushed with egg?
