Bonne Bouche

Bonne Bouche!  Wait, let me get this phrase correct since I have vague memories of my French classes in high school.  Better yet, let me get the correct definition so I don’t mislead you. According to the Webster, bonne bouche is a dessert being supremely delicious or appetizing. The definition goes on to say a choice morsel.

Just so happens, July 14 is Bastille Day, the French National Day commemorating the beginning of the French Revolution. It started with the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of French people on July 14, 1790.
