Pretentious french words for "green bean." Bitches with food recipes that can't stand on their own by virtue of actual taste or presentation like to drop obscure or French phrases into their recipe titles in lieu of normal English words in a stilted effort to make it seem more exotic.

Thus, you have bullshit words like "haricots verts" instead of green beans, "galette" instead of pastry, "jus" instead of juice, "crudités" instead of veggies, and so on.

If you're cooking fucking green beans, just say so. Your worth as a chef is dependent on your goddamn food itself, not what you call it.
Menu item: Haricots Verts in its own jus, served over a beurre reduction.
Translation: Green beans with butter.
