Food is very important in the French culture. When you think of French culture, you probably think of delicious French cheese, bread, pastries and wine.
But when we need to eat a little healthier, we also love our vegetables!
Vegetables are full of joy and life, of vibrant colours and healthy energy.
Of course, as with many French expressions about food, vegetables have made their way into many parts of colloquial French language.
In this lesson, let’s learn French expressions with French names for vegetables, les légumes.
Try “les carrottes sont cuites”, “c’est les fin des haricots”, “mettre du beurre dans les épinards”, “raconter des salades”, if you want to sound French to the French. Watch the video below to find out more.
