So in England the supermarkets have plenty of 'ready meals' which one puts in microwave or a hot oven. If I put ready meal into Google Translate I get 'Repas prêts' but I think 'Plats cuisinés' is closer.
However, if I look at search results for 'Plats cuisinés' some of them are canned and some boxed whereas the English ready-meal is typically found in a refrigerated section, and is laid out in a plastic tray with a cardboard sleeve. One removes the sleeve and perforates the film and places in microwave.
Often they are Indian, Thai or Chinese meals, i.e. ethnic cuisine.
I was just wondering if I was missing a better translation or do the French cook far more from scratch?
