GOOD POINT!!! You know what I just realized? I couldn't care less about St Patrick's day, it's more of an excuse to have an idea for a menu and to explore a dish I wouldn't have otherwise cooked. But I can live with celebrating the day after!! Great idea. 
Exactly! That was my thought. The guy walked in the wrong place.

Being a student, maybe you should turn to your teachers for help?

Ha, thanks mimi. Only thing I remember is, back then I was trying to get away from Teflon and I really thought those ceramic coated pans were going to be the solution... and that's when I ended up getting my stainless steel and carbon steel pans. I have never looked back. 
This is dubious. The French version isn't in proper French... what's odd is that many of the mistakes sound typical from an American/English person speaking French. Another giveaway: no one measures chocolate in "tasses" in France. While you might occasionally see "tasse" used in a French recipe, that's usually for recipes that were translated from the English language. Otherwise it doesn't make much sense to use a volume measurement for chocolate, not in France. Grams...
