Want to learn some basic French grocery shopping vocabulary?
Look no further than New Zealand.
Or should I say, look as far away from France as you possibly can, as the ocean just east of New Zealand is France’s geographical antipode!
In any event, my personal favourite French vocabulary lesson comes courtesy of Bret & Jemaine, NZ’s own, Flight of the Conchords.
Borrowed directly from the video’s Supermarché scene, here are 5 of the finest French food names:
5. Poisson (surprisingly, unlike the video, not “Jacques Cousteau”) = Fish
4. Soupe du jour = Soup of the day
3. Ananas = Pineapple
2. Boeuf = Beef
1. Pamplemousse = Grapefruit
