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

I tried cherries at first but it wasn't accepted, only cherry. The only reason I got it correct was because of the color, cerise. I was trying to think of every food that is red.

I went by colour, only I was obviously thinking of another one and went for celery! Oh dear. I eventually got cherry because I really looked at the word and thought about it. And guessed a lot.

Apr 28, 2018
I only had one lesson in French, ever, in primary school (approx 50 years ago) and I got them all. I think it has to do with them being food, reading cook books and my Mum's good guessing gene.

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.

Except nobody calls them "pommes frites" in french.

It is pate. I've never heard this one. I am in my first year of French and we just finished learning foods.
+2
level 72
Apr 25, 2016
It is not pâté : you can make pâté with liver (and with a lot of other things too), but liver is the organ, foie, and only foie. You've got a liver, you are not made of pâté !

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.

There is no need to learn culinary French. If you are in a restaurant in France everything on the menu will be delicious by definition. All you have to do is to point at random and wait for a fantastic meal. Neantmoins, j'ai recu 24 sur 24 :)

Why only accept fries instead of "French fries" or "fried potatoes"?
+1
level 38
Oct 10, 2018
Because "Frites" means fried, not french fries.
+1
level 49
Nov 20, 2017
100% and 3:15 left, and I don't even learn French. I just signed up for this French learning website and learnt some basics for a couple of months earlier this year because I was bored, haha.

Anyone else messed up by the fact that "raspberr" is accepted, causing you to get an extra Y in your answer box?
+2
level 57
Jan 13, 2019
yea that was weird, I started questioning myself thinking I accidentality typed another y... cause the type ins allowed are often very weird and annoying, (thought you get used to it, eventhough I still always type in the full word, atleast now I remember to look up and delete letter after allmost every answer)
+1
level 64
Mar 25, 2018
I don't, and never have, spoken a lick of French. I ended up with 19 purely from lots of culinary experience and extrapolating from Spanish.

You can't beat a good Rabbit pie: Plenty of vegetables and stock and cut up the rabbit and cook till tender, season to taste then add a nice crust and bake in oven till crust cooked....... yum
