Asked in French Toast
Did the French invented French toast?
Yes, the French did invent French toast they also invented French Fries. Ans. 2 The French might well have invented French Fries had not the Belgians beaten them to it. It is noteworthy that although frites are the most popular way of eating potatoes in France, the French are always willing to give credit to the Belgians for them. On the other hand, the French have no desire to take credit for "French Toast". They did not invent it, or name it, they do not eat it and there is no word for it in French, except possibly 'degeu'. It probably came from the USA, but no-one there wants to take the blame credit for it either.

What food did France invent?
French did not 'invent' food. Something very French (like bread) already existed even if the form wasn't exactly the same. But the many different ways of cooking, what is called French cuisine, is rich and diverse. Southern French recipes tend to be more sunny with the input of tomatoes, pasta, olive oil. Northern cuisine tends to use potatoes, and butter instead of oil.
