En faire tout un fromage

Le mot du jour : “en faire tout un fromage”
That expression is quite funny and can be translated by : “to make a whole cheese out of something”

You use it when someone is overreacting, making a big fuss. It is the equivalent of the British expression “to make a mountain out of a molehill”

That expression can be explained by the fact that making cheese is quite a long and delicate process, so it’s a big thing.
Once again, we have to face the fact that food is really central in French life and language 😀
