Tasteful French phrases

By Debra Dobbins

One measly rose? Made-up holiday or not, surely Sam can do better. While he may know that ”au contraire” means “on the contrary” in French, he hardly seems fluent in the language of love.

Sam should at least present Sara her rose in a romantic French restaurant. Below are a few phrases they’d possibly see on the menu:

À la carte - on the menu, with each dish priced
À la mode - with ice cream.
Au gratin - with cheese
Bon appétit - good appetite, or "Enjoy your food"
Café au lait - coffee with milk
Cordon bleu - high quality, especially of cooking
Crème brûlée - “burnt cream,'” baked custard with a carmelized crust
Crème caramel - a flan, a custard dessert with a layer or caramel on top
Haute cuisine - high class cooking; literally, “upper kitchen”
Hors d'oeuvres - an extra dish served as a relish to whet the appetite, normally at the start of a meal
Petit four - a small dessert, usually a dainty cake
Soupe du jour - “soup of the day,” the soup offered by a restaurant that day
Table d'hôte - a full-course meal offering a limited number of choices and served at a fixed price in a restaurant or hotel

Sam seems to have forgotten Sara’s stress over the major life change of having her parents move in. A rose and a romantic meal could greatly restore her joie de vivre (joy of life.)
