French Lessons: Des Baguettes
Much like un éclair, I love the double meaning of the word baguette. Not only is it the thin, long loaf of bread beloved in France, but it also is the word used for chopsticks. So next time you’re in an Asian restaurant in Paris you can ask, “Avez-vous des baguettes?”, but you’ll likely be full on rice rather than bread after the meal.
French Lessons is an ongoing series where I teach you French words and cultural lessons while beefing up my Illustrator skills.
