Pain au Chocolat, the Return

French Word of the Day: Prêt à Manger – ready to eat

The above is pronounced pray-a-mon-zhay, not “pret”.  I will, however, forgive those of you who pronounce it incorrectly.  (As pretty much everyone who talks about it says “pret”, I don’t really have a choice.)

I finally got a pain au chocolat!  This greeted me yesterday at work:

I was asked to grade Prêt à Manger’s pain au chocolat, and I give them a B.  It’s some of the best I’ve found in America.  Nice job, guys.

I’m sure a French person would say “C,” so I’m being generous here.
