Description

The idiosyncrasies of language can tell us a lot about a culture. In this delightful book, Clotilde Dusoulier, creator of the award-winning food blog Chocolate & Zucchini, delves into the history and meaning of fifty of the French language's most popular food-related expressions. Accompanied by beautiful watercolor illustrations by artist MElina Josserand, Edible French explores whimsical turns of phrase such as: Tomber dans les pommes (falling into the apples) = fainting Se faire rouler dans la farine (being rolled in flour) = being fooled Avoir un coeur d'artichaut (having the heart of an artichoke) = falling in love easily A treat of a read for Francophiles and food lovers alike, Edible French is the tastiest way to explore French culture-one that will leave you in high spirits-or, as the French say, vous donnera la pEche (give you the peach).
