Kathy's StoryAs children we were good at messing up words and especially French ones! My grandmother made Papa and Do for us often and the traditon continues with my grand children.
Imagine my surprise when I found out after 60 years of life that the real name of this dish is Pain Perdu which means lost bread!
Grandma never corrected my pronunciation and now my family calls it Papa & Do, so that is how recipe names get changed.
