  1. 13 What Brichot is « admirable »?
    1) Parts of whist 2) fried potatoes, 3) its own articles in the press

    Hum…remember Charlus and Morel around whist (not Saniette). Don’t think it’s that interesting to admire your own articles, but it is rather quirky to give such an adjective to potatoes, especially fried.

    So, guessing #2.

    Also, there must be every kind of potatoes in the novel…poor Bergotte had some that were even undercooked.

    And in real life, didn’t Proust serve the Poulet Quartet mashed potatoes and Champagne? Or was that just in a movie? 😉

  2. J’emboîte le pas aux pommes de terre frites : la 2

  3. Réponse 2 (et Brichot de conclure: Frite XIXe s (pomme de terre) : fém. substantivé de frit, de frictus; Friterie XIXe s; Friteuse XXe s…)
