Pain perdu means lost bread. It’s about recycling stale bread. It’s poor people’s food. End of the month family meals.
But the world is getting so snob. People go to restaurants to have lost bread.So they eat what when they are at home ?
There are discussion about another overrated American food chain (pleonasm) that opened recently an ambitious (pretentious) breakfast joint in Shinjuku, Tokyo’s business district. The story is they ask 1200 to 1400 yen just for French toasts… that are totally ordinary. Usually, you’d get that for 350 yen. So what’s special ?
And some idiots have paid to go and check that only the price was special. Bravo ! Their reviews are fun to read.
Shokupan, Japanese bread. It’s very industrial stuff. It was on sale, stale. Perfect. A slice = 10 yen.
An egg, a little cream and a little vanilla sugar. Plus 10 yen.
After making this cake, I scrapped the pan of dried ganache with a wooden spoon.
Took out the home-made spicy marmelade and some fresh mikan mandarin oranges (click here).
Let’s enjoy all that with a coffee.
You’d love that for 1400 yen ? I want to open an overrated shop, me too…
