Del Boy Trotter, wheeler, dealer, charmer….and linguist!!! ????
We take a look back at his own special brand of the French language!

Au revoir – hello
Au contraire – hang on a minute
Bain marie – no problem
Boeuf à la mode – you win some, you lose some
Bonjour – goodbye
Bonnet de douche – impressive!
Chateauneuf du Pape! – OMG!
Creme de la menthe – the very best
Fromage frais! – Eureka!
Mange tout – my pleasure
Menage à trois – to express surprise.
Oeuf sur la plat – it’s obvious
Pas de Calais – to express approval
Pot Pourri! – I don’t believe it!
Plume de ma tante – to express exasperation
Tête de veau – every one’s a winner.

….and a bit more fun from the Trotter brothers
Del: One of my most favouritist meals is Duck à l’Orange, but I don’t know how to say that in French.
Rodney: It’s canard.
Del: You can say that again bruv!
