At first, I said - oh, you guys are just being mean again- but then I thought, what Frenchman wouldn't know to say "Vietnamese". After all, France was involved in Vietnam for close to a 100 years!

But would a Frenchman know how to say Vietnamese in English? Yannic does atleast have .fr in his e-mail address.

While Snipe are found in Vietnam, I have seen no indication that they are a common food (though cats were popular before the rat problem got so bad), so I'd guess M.C. is just living up to his name.

No sipe here

Just for M.C.

Good point, Jay, and a great site. Think I'll go put my cynical ol' self in the corner for a while.
Now where'd I put my dunce hat?

But you can bet your boots that no Francophone would describe him/herself as a "french cooker" no matter what language he/she was attempting to wrestle to the ground. I say it's snipe.

You people are really mean. You know what? Vietnamese is Vietnamien in French. That was a truly understandable mistake. Anyway, both words are probably far from the way Vietnamese call themselves...

There's a magazine called Fine Cooking that one may reference, if one has an inclination.
