A Short Guide to Foodie French... with a touch of salt

After the succes of Say Chic, comes a brand new opus exploring French words we use in English, in this case, French for "Foodies", the French words found in menus, cookbooks and the local shop, almost all of them with tales to tell. Did you ever wonder how it came that a sommelier was orginally the beam of a bed, or an omelette is listed as a dessert, or who is this "Charlotte" of the "Charlotte Russe" or "Melba" of the "Pêche Melba" happened to be? Designed for those who dine out and dine in, as well as for those who find themselves faced with a French "carte" incorporating a  seemingly unending list of French terms, this delightful tome becomes not only fun, but fundamental.
