Living France - - What's New -

The on­go­ing bat­tle to have chocolatine recog­nised as an al­ter­na­tive name for the pain au choco­lat has now gained the French par­lia­ment’s at­ten­tion. The term orig­i­nates from the Gas­cony re­gion and is widely used in south-west­ern France. MPs from the area re­cently asked par­lia­ment for an amend­ment to a wider farm­ing and food law that would give the name chocolatine of­fi­cial sta­tus. While a rul­ing in favour is thought to be un­likely, the con­tin­ued de­bate shows the level of pride that ex­ists around French food prod­ucts and her­itage.
