The approved measure, which was supported by restaurateur unions, requires the term "fait maison," which translates to "home-made" or "made on site," to be placed on menus or otherwise displayed in restaurants to denote dishes "made on site using raw ingredients," Radio France Internationale reported Friday.
The measure states restaurants can be fined if they are found to be using the term fraudulently.
The parliament rejected an amendment proposed by the right-wing UMP party that would have restricted use of the term "restaurant" to eateries preparing dishes using raw ingredients.
