Well, French toast has different names in different regions. But the interesting thing about French toast is- French toast did not come from France.
It’s known in France as ‘pain perdu,’ which literally translates to ‘lost bread,’ because it’s frequently cooked from stale or old bread. Despite the fact that most people refer to it as French Toast, the dish isn’t always associated with France.
It’s also known as eggy bread or Gypsy toast in the UK, and it’s eaten as a sweet or savory dish.
But the reason behind calling it a French toast is- When an innkeeper in Albany, New York, recreated the dish in 1724, it gave Americans their first taste of French toast.
However, because he was an innkeeper and not a grammar expert, Joseph French accidentally omitted the apostrophe while naming his dish French’s Toast.
