Contributions of the French

My two favorite contributions of the French:

  • Pommes frites (although some may claim a Belgian origin. The difference of no interest to me, and yes, I have read every extant book and story featuring Hercule Poirot)
  • Marmalade (which probably has a Portuguese origin, but it sounds French to me.)
