This is what you get being married to a French Professor. I said "I need to make my pâte fermenté" but I pronounced pâte as in Pat Sajak. She said, "Your what?" in startled tones. I said "My pâte, you know p-a with the little thing." I made finger motions for the accent. "a-t-e. fermenté". "Oh," she said. And then pronounced it correctly: Pot. I pronounced it closer to well... Pet which means fart.
Moral: Be careful how you pronounce things or your bread might be more smelly than you intended. And to think I took French in high school.
