Definition of pain perdu in English:
French term for French toast.
- French onion soup with Mull cheddar followed by Scottish beef with celeriac gratin are supremely tasty as a starter and main course, while a delicious pudding is pain perdu - which translates as ‘lost bread’.
- Ditto the eggy brioche pain perdu, which I enjoyed one evening with banana ice cream, some poached rhubarb, and a dollop of crème fraîche.
- Looking at the la carte dessert menu featuring delights like pain perdu, pistachio mousse and quince sorbet, I can't believe they wouldn't be fine.
French, literally 'lost bread'.
