I always find myself blanking a bit when I'm in a French restaurant, this is a great idea to help everyone review some French vocabulary! I'll add some vocabulary for spices.

salt= le sel

pepper= le poivre

sugar= le sucre

oregano= le origan

basil= le basilic

flour= la farine

vinegar= le vinaigre
