Vie pratique et style

We challenged chefs of three different levels - an amateur, a home cook and a professional chef - to make their versions of French toast. And then we brought in a food scientist to review their work. Which French toast was the best?

    I don't get it... They make a "french" recipe without using the good type of bread. Us, french, we tend to use old bread. In fact, this recipe was invented because poeple did'nt want to put in the trash can their hard bread. That's why it's soaked in egg to make it more tender...

    Ketchup? Nutella AND maple sirup? Cookie crumbs? French toast needs just maple syrup. Done. Its about balance. Crispy, soft, and light salty french toast with real delicious maple syrup. I can dig the idea with the bananas, but yo, that is it. The rest is blasphemous.

    In Spain we call it torrijas, and it's typical easter dessert. But we use better quality bread, regular bread, one or two days old, and soaked in aromatized milk for a couple of minutes before they are soaked in stirred eggs. The aromas are lemon zest and cinnamon. And toppings, only regular white sugar, right when they come out of the pan, so it melts. Yummy!!!

    Like many food names it's not always possible to confirm the story, but one version is that the way we make French toast now can be traced back to an innkeeper in New York in the 18th century named J. French. So it's French's toast which became french toast. Like German chocolate cake is not named after the country but a man named German.
