    I expected to hear some common French phrases I’ve heard over the years but I got some really unknown ones I think I’ve heard maybe three of all these The French language is so beautiful you can say the nastiest thing and make it sound like a love poem Knowing these little phrases should be fun “Etre tout sucre tout miel” being all sugar and honey Which basically means somebody who is being all fake overly nice and sweet when they don’t really feel that way One of the weirdest to me was “ Pedelar dans la choucroute” Peddling in Sauerkraut LOL to means being in over one’s headI found myself really enjoying these little phrases after I got a bit into the book There is the brief description and a fun little way to use it in conversation at the bottom I can see my snarky self using many of these in the future I love commenting something that really only hits home with me There are even recipes included that tie in with some of the phrases Bonus beautiful water colors and color slashes make the page bright and pleasant to look at After you finish the book there is a little uiz you can take to see what you rememberI plan on buying a copy of this for my son who travels to France and is a major foodie It is a perfect gift for the French student traveler or food enthusiast

    This charming little book illustrated with some eually charming watercolours gives the history and meaning of fifty different food related French idioms I hadn't heard of than a handful of them before but I'm now going to try my best to work être comme un co dans pâte or avoir un cœur d'artichaut into my conversational French There are also some delicious looking recipes that will likely reward further exploration

    This book is a bit of whimsy I am curious about languages and love words On each page is a French idiom and translation with an explanation of its origin and how to use it in a sentence On the opposite page is a beautiful watercolor that somehow illustrates the expression I love the pictures; they are a perfect pairing to the idiom like a rooster in dough which means cozy I don't know if this idiom works well with the context but was the best one to describe the marriage of words and art Being in uarantine to prevent the spread of the Corona virus I have found a few that I might use For example I play cards and lose to my family I am in the cabbages coming in last Etre dans les choux No need to write tartines; I will end this review now Ecrire des tartinesbe wordy

    This is the perfect little gift book for the foodie or language lover in your life The book provides a nice color drawing of the food in uestion and a short description of the saying in French and gives some background how it might have developed in the language Instead of the usual coffee table book a cute book to have in the kitchen or the nearby breakfast bar to flip through while waiting for something to finish cooking Digital review copy provided by the publisher though NetGalley

    Don't botherThe only reason to pick up the book is the few drawings in the book that are enjoyable This person is not a writer
