More gastronomic & linguistic innovation from As You Like It.



Apologies for the poor quality photo; I must have been shaking with contempt when I noticed that their latest menu referred to "Gateaux's & Cakes".


UPDATE: Here's an article discussing the above issue.

You went back? Those gateaux's must be delicious.

Hello ! What's really funny is that in French, the 'x' at the end of gâteau shows that the word is in the plural. So this additional 's' looks even stranger!

The food and drink is really good there. It's just that whoever writes the menu is borderline illiterate.

Anne, that's similar to the ubiquitous use of 'paninis' here. 'Panini' itself is a plural; 'panino' is singular.

I could be wrong, but I've a feeling there is something similar with 'pizza'. Where's that foam bloke from the Dolmio adverts when you need him?

Dan, I think you are wrong, panini is Italian for "sticker of football player".

Pizzi is the plural in Italian, but through English usage 'pizzas' has become the accepted form. If I ever heard anyone ask for a couple of 'pizzi', I'd smash my Nastro Azzuro in his or her [insert Sunday broadsheet here]-tastic face.

Dan, you can also buy 'paninis' everywhere here in France. And you'd be appalled at the use of the apostrophe in the words that French people like to borrow - incorrectly of course - from your language ! Adding apostrophes just anywhere definitely makes a word sound or look English! By the way I hope there aren't too many stupid mistakes in my English!
