'The French love their language as much as their food' by K.J.S.Chatrath

(Source: The internet)

“The French use various expressions in everyday conversations that are more or less in conjunction with food. Some of them are funny and not just common sayings, more so colloquial and slang that are used sometimes in fashion and sometimes not so. Examples such as à toutes les sauces (lit: with all the sauces): in all sorts of ways, avoir une faim de loup (to have the hunger of a wolf): to be ravenous/starving hungry, les carottes sont cuites (lit: the carrots are cooked): I’ve had it/that’s enough”
