“One of the greatest things I’ve ever seen happen was the morning I opened the newspaper and it said that some very powerful government officials had decided to change the name of “french fries” to “freedom fries” and “french toast” to “freedom toast”. It was impressive. I wanted to write a letter to them just to thank them, just for proving globally that they were absolute imbeciles” -Johnny Depp.
History of National French Toast Day
The origin and history of National French Toast Day are not known. In France, French Toast is called as pain perdu, which means lost bread as the French Toast is usually made with old or stale bread. Even though we regularly call it as French Bread, it is not known to have come from France. From the fourth-century, some ancient Latin recipes are made by soaking bread in milk before frying, and in the 4th Century in Germany, French Toast is named as poor knights pudding because it is a cheap meal so even those without too much money can afford. Today, French Toast is eaten all around the world as a sweet snack or as a breakfast meal. French Toast Day is commonly made with eggs, bread, and milk, but few people also add some vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar for the base. Hence French Toast Day is a perfect day to enjoy the taste of French Toast with your friends and family members.
