All but Cerise. I knew it was something like that and I must have guessed every berry type food there is apart from cherry!

Got them all with 3:18 on the clock. 6 years of French classes have finally paid off.

Never taken French in my life but still managed to get 19/20 due to the similarities of the words in Spanish haha
May 23, 2014

But be careful not to rely too much on similarities. Old, probably apocryphal story: the French housewife who told her Spanish maid "Prenez le gateau dans le frigidaire." When she opened the refrigerator a few minutes later she saw that her maid had put the cat (gato) in there.

That's a good one! Would have come in handy in the years when I was studying both French and Spanish, the similarities tripped me up everytime, especially when I guessed the Spanish word for embarrassed (e.g. I am embarrassed) was similar to it's English counterpart and accidentally told my Colombian neighbour "Soy embarasada" (I am pregnant), rather than I am embarrased :(

Spanish does help

Back in jolly old Blighty growing up, we got a lot of jams, preserves, etc that were from places like Poland that were aimed at the whole European market, hence a lot had French names on them as well as English. Probably like that in parts of Canada. It helped with the "Confiture du fraises, et Confiture du cerises".

Got them all right and never had a french lesson in my life (nor any other foreign language), english is my mother tongue. I suspect however that living in France for 5 years may have helped.

Me too, 10 years of French. I really can't converse in French at all, but yes, I got them all.

You should change "frites" to "pommes frites". "Frites" on its own just means fried. And you should also add French fries as an acceptable answer.

In fact, we never say "pommes frites" in French, only "frites".

I will never forget "fromage" as long as I live, all thanks to Dexter's Laboratory. "Omelette du fromage -- omelette du fromage -- omelette du fromage -- omelette du fromage --"

The answers should really be paired to the clues in this one, no guessing every damn food you know to get a lot of them right.
