Bon Apetit


The French phrase "bon apetit" meaning "enjoy your food" originates from an ancient French delicacy. While occupying coastal areas in the south of Africa, local French dignitories were served up a local delicacy of ape breast. The local French extended only as far as to wish the dignitories a nice meal, expressing themselves as "bon ape tit" or "good ape breast" when literally translated.
