Did you know it? Pain perdu is a way of using stale bread, either because of the need to not waste food or because throwing away bread, with its religious connotations, is socially unacceptable. But, as it has been taken up by cooks who have enriched it with flavors such as cinnamon, it has also become an element of neat desserts offered in gourmet restaurants.
