"It's just a fancy French word for..."

Chiffonade, bouquet garni, court bouillon...the list goes on and on. Why do TV chefs, and a lot of people for that matter, always say, "It's just a fancy French word for..." No. They are not "fancy" words...they are just French! Maybe when we were 8 years old French was a "fancy" language, but we're adults now and French words are just that...words!

Thanks for listening. I feel better now. :)
