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.
