Marie Antoinette never said "Let them eat cake." That is one of the oldest urban legends.

Just as "the lion's share" doesn't mean the greater portion of something, as everyone uses it to mean, but rather ALL of something.

Hi ! I have great memories of a cute little bakery in the last "Parish" route town going south to north.

The pastry we had was so! so! delicious! It was called "Brie Cheese" but the clerk made sure I knew it was not the Brie cheese! It just looked like it!
It was so great! We also had a local farmer's market a burnt top cheese bread! Everyone was buying it even though it looked burnt! Oh! It was so terriffic!

Maybe someone who lives in France call give the proper names for these treats?

I have been wracking my brains for the name and bakery that I couldn't come up with, and I'm glad to see this thread brougnt to life because I want to recommend the Delice d'pistache at Dallyou. Thank you lord for allowing me to retrieve this memory. Had a head injury about 3 years ago and I'm thrilled to remember this!
