Possible translation error?

In the transcription "Kig ha Farz" is said to signify "viande et far" and on clicking it is translated to English as "meat and lighthouse". I'm just not sure that is what you meant to say. I don't know what else "far" would be, but if it is indeed meant to be "lighthouse" I think it should be spelled "phare" in French.

Bonjour Paul,

Thank you both pointing this out. The translation has now been updated.

Bonne journée!

Apparently "far" is derived from "farine", i.e. "flour", but it's not really translatable, just the name of the pudding. Not "lighthouse" though...
