I remember a trip to the Mont St. Michel while on foreign study in college
where our group was given a special meal at one of the restaurants where it
was explained to us that one of the specialties was "mouton au pré salé"
(mutton salted by the meadow), and the pre-salted nature of the meat was
considered a delicacy. The other specialty was an "omelette baveuse" IIRC,
so called because "bave" meant the froth on the mouth of a horse that has
been running hard - the omelette wasn't made with horse-spit, but the
texture of the egg's interior was frothy. Both were quite tasty.
