Do restaurants in France use freezers?

I was just wondering - does anyone know if they use any kind of frozen ingredients or have any use for freezing? Not refrigeration, mind you - freezing in particular.

    Yes.

      given the prevalence of sorbets and ice creams on dessert menus, I'm saying yes.

      As far as other ingredients? Probably.

        this is a link to a tv documentary that will explain all there is to know about restos, freezers, and the wild and wacky world of prepared cuisine
