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.

          SIL - the video is enough to answer all of your questions grasshopper

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

        As far as other ingredients? Probably.
