I don't think there's a country anywhere that doesn't localise names of things, food included. I don't think having another name minimises its iconic comfort food French status. It just is another line item in the lore of making people nostalgic for and love it. That's what the movie was doing and what comfort food is - delicious nostalgia. I don't think it's problematic, but others disagree for sure. Have a good day, friend!

This is such an ignorant take. Something is traditional to a country or region for hundreds of years. It holds a special place in the heart of the people that live there. So, when someone is corrected to the proper name then they should respect that and start using it. Not say ‘well, I don’t want to call it that'.

It’s like you telling us your name is Dave, and me saying, nah, I’m gonna call you Potato instead.
