Passer - to pass, go by

Passer - French verb
The regular -er French verb passer usually means "to pass" and may require either être or avoir as its auxiliary verb in compound tenses/moods, depending on how it's used.


Les truffes
Parmi tous les délices français, la Tuber melanosporum, surnommée la truffe du Périgord, est sans doute le plus savoureux - et le plus cher.
