Today's Language Tip

Seeing that it is the summer season and France is full of tourists, it's time for a handy tip from Madame Language Person.
When looking at a French menu, you might see the following:

steak à cheval
steak de cheval

There's a BIG difference between the two! Steak à cheval means 'an egg riding horseback--on top of--a steak' while 'steak de cheval' IS a horse steak.

It's amazing, isn't it, the difference one little preposition can make?

Bon Appétit!
