Love me some raisins:D
Knew that one but still hate raisins
I didn't know that. I love them, especially with rum!
I'll have to share this with my husband. He practically lives on raisins. (Yuck!)
Good fact. I think my French vocabulary is limited to the words "croissant" and "crepe," so I did not know this one.
Raisins? Which kind? the soft and chewy? Or the ones like pellets?
No wonder "raisin" sounds much more sophisticated than "grape" - it's French. xoRobyn
Once you start looking there are a lot of food words that come from French. Usually the posh ones. "porc" instead of "pig" "boeuf" instead of "cow" - and yes they are usually the posher ones. I'm told it is becuase when English language was developing, the French speaking Normans invaded in 1066 AD and they became the ruling class. So their words for food became the posh alternatives to the rough tough old Britons! :)
So how do I order raisins in French when I'm in Paris?
I took 3 years of French and never learn this. Cool!
