What is the difference between DOM and TOM?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

DOM stands for Département d'Outre-Mer. These are large, populated areas that follow the very same rules as the mainland French départements. The laws are the exact same. TOM stands for Territoire d'Outre-Mer. These are smaller areas (or sparsely populated) overseas, which are part of France, but with laws often merged with local traditions (councils of elders, trade agreements with neighboring countries, larger fiscal autonomy, ....). The word TOM has been replaced in law by COM (Collectivité d'Outre-Mer: Oversea Community), but remains in widespread use for most French speakers.

France has five oversea Départements (DOM): Guadeloupe - Martinique - Guyane (French Guiana) - La Réunion - Mayotte.

It has a number of TOM, which we should call more properly COM: Nouvelle-Calédonie, Polynésie, Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthelemy, Wallis-et-Futuna.

Are croissants from France?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Croissants are made using a "roll in Dough". This a technique in which the dough is rolled into a rectagle and then smeared quite liberally with a roll in fat. Most home recipes call for butter or a mix of butter and flour.(Butter is 80% pure fat and 20% waterand other matter, the flour helps absorb some of the water so the dough doesn't become soggy). In commercial bakeries, however, use a roll in fat such as "Covo". It has a heavier more waxy texture than butter,and is cheaper, making it better for quantity production. The major problem is that it is a trans fat. Bad for the arteries, not that the cholesterol in butter is much better. The dough is then folded in a series of 3 folds and 4 folds. (1 fold of each is called a turn) the dough is allowed to rest between turns under refridgeration for at least 1/2 hour to keep gluten from makin the doiugh too elastic. 3 turns will give you close to 1000 layer. The fat between each layer is what gives the croissant it's flakiness. The dough is rolled out the last time and cut into triangles and rolled wide end to narrow and the ends pinched. Then simply bake @ 425 F. for about 25 min. Some doughs use a little yeast as well so they require "proofing" before baking.

National food of france?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Traditional foods include duck, many patés and terrines, saucisson(dried sausage), crêpes, even couscous(the dish), which, while North African in origin, is widely considered to be a French dish.

Actual staples(which you'll find in almost every French home) are steak haché(hamburger patties), a lot of canned vegetables, rice, couscous(the grain), definitely lots of cheeses, baguette(french stick bread), pasta(especially with carbonara sauce) and ham.

I should include wine, and lots of it.
