French Toast Comes to France


Today was the big day. I day I made French Toast for the French! Specifically, Ivan and Marine from Presque Lune, who playfully mocked me with over-enthusiastic anticipation.

Everyone in America should be relieved to know my French Toast came out very well!

Tres bon! Is very good-ah! The French Toast Scandal and Intrigue had reached a delicious climax.

They said it was similar to a dish they’ve had called Pain Perdu—the Lost Toast we’ve heard about. However, Lost Toast is different, because you put sugar in the egg mixture, along with milk, and possibly Grand Marnier, and in some cases you bake it—an internet search revealed several recipes with variations.

That’s one small meal for man, one giant leap for Franco-American relations.
