9780399169847: Edible French: Tasty Expressions and Cultural Bites

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 Mélina 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 cœur 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 pêche (give you the peach).

INTRODUCTION

One fall evening six years ago, I was having dinner at a small Paris bistro with two dear friends of mine who were visiting from California. As we studied the menu, we noticed it was decorated with dozens of French expressions related to food, printed in different retro types.

Once our orders had been placed, we asked to keep a menu and spent a happy moment translating, explaining, and finding English equivalents for those idioms. The seed of an idea was planted, and two weeks later I started a series of posts on my food blog, Chocolate & Zucchini, to shed light on what I dubbed the “edible idioms” of the French language.

I’ve always loved the idiosyncrasies of languages and what they tell us about a culture, and it is certainly striking to see the French love of food and the importance meals have in daily life translate so richly in the fabric of the language. Matters of the table are considered with such care and attention that whenever the French mind searches for an expression to illustrate a situation, it is likely to come up with a food-related metaphor or simile, one that has to do with bread or cheese or wine.

Researching those expressions was as much a treat for me as for my readers; this series soon became one of my most popular, and I was often asked whether I had plans to publish them as a book.

The spark for that came four years later, when Mélina Josserand first contacted me. A French watercolor artist living in London, she was a fan of those posts and was volunteering to illustrate them.

I was instantly smitten with the playfulness of her work and her eye for color, and after collaborating on a few posts and hitting it off like we’d known each other all our lives, we decided to turn my words and her brushstrokes into the book you are now holding in your hands.

In it you’ll find fifty of the most delicious expressions of the French language, some of them favorites from the blog series, some of them all new, with example sentences and Mélina’s gorgeous illustrations. You’ll also find cultural notes, fun quizzes, and a few very easy but very tasty recipes inspired by some of these idioms.

We hope you enjoy this colorful window onto the French language and that you’ll “make your honey out of it.”
