  1. I had tried this recipe with a slice bread but today I tried it with a stale baguette.. and it was just another level. Absolutely yummy! Thanks for sharing Chef 🙏🏼

  2. Hi Stephane, I absolutely love it when you incorporate a bit of French history behind certain recipes in your videos, like in this one. This makes your videos more interesting and helps them stand out, instead of just being about following a procedure like most other channels. Now I can understand much more about French culture and cuisine. Thanks chef!

  3. I don't know how many times I had stale French bread (I buy my French bread at Costco and it comes with two loaves and by the time I want to eat the second loaf, it goes stale and is as hard as a brick…) and did not know what to do with it. Thanks for this simple recipe. I can't wait to try it.

  4. Any old bread in our house is made into "pain perdu". We call it simply "fried slices". MY husband eats them with feta cheese,, other people with honey. I don't sprinkle them with sugar. You can dip these in everything – salty or sweet. 🙂

  5. Any idea which part of France your ancestors are from? I have ancestry from France but was born and raised in Canada. Most people here use maple syrup in place of the sugar.

  6. Interesting two bowl technique … never heard of that before, I'll try it next time … I'll also try the granulated sugar … looks good!  we usually use powdered sugar or maple syrup (yes, yes!) but I'm willing to learn a new way to do it
