Anyone who's watched one of Gordon Ramsay's shows or read one of Anthony Bourdain's books knows by now that your average kitchen is on par with your average sailing vessel for the amount of crude language used. And anyone who knows me knows I'm a big fan of a well-placed Anglo-Saxon phrase.
So I couldn't resist pointing you toward Ms. Blaze's recent post about cursing in a French kitchen. She thought she was learning some great language skills from her culinary colleagues, till she dropped her cellphone and exclaimed "Oh, putain!" on the Métro one morning. Whoops - or, should I say, merde.
