OK, I'm not really, but I've just been browsing the Carrefour website and the Google translations are hilarious 'Sea Bream emptied and scraped.' something 'Paved with pink trout.' It's probably best not to use Google Translate or it might put you off your dinner:lol-053:

L'assiette gourmand always tickled me....it sounds so sophisticated...but means the greedy plate...

Bet that would do well in London

After a skiing accident an old chum of mine was sitting up in a French hospital bed surrounded by his pals when a nurse said to him 'Je veux laver ta face' . Enjoying the attention of the pretty girl and wanting to show off his knowledge of the french language he said 'Pas de problem' thinking she was going to attend to his facial appearance.

Only when when she started to turn him over, much to his embarrassment, did it dawn on him that 'face' might be his bottom.

Just checked wordhippo.com. and indeed gourmand does mean greedy along with glouton.

Channa.

Perhaps used along the lines of French slang in reality?

fI remember when M&S opened in Paris. They had to take some canned food items off the shelf as they had been labelled "non Preservatif" :lol-053::lol-053::lol-053:
