Food Word of the Day: Ambrosial

Food Word of the Day: Ambrosial |

When I first came upon today’s word I was surprised by its meaning. To me, Ambrosia is rice pudding in a tin that I never really enjoyed. I definitely wouldn’t describe the taste of it as ambrosial!

This post is part of my Food Word of the Day series. See more words here.

  1. I always thought Ambrosia meant heavenly and not necessarily to do with food. You learn something new everyday…

    • It can also mean heavenly or divine, Donna – I only include the food-related definition on my cards to keep them simple. 🙂

  2. There are only two things I will not eat – one is English mustard (due to an unfortunate British Rail Ham Sandwich incident when i was a child from which trauma I have never fully recovered) and the other is rice pudding due in no small part to that vile stuff in the tin. So I entirely agree Ambrosia is not at all ambrosial. However, the word ambrosial used correctly does conjure up heavenly confections ….

    • I can only imagine that ham sandwich incident! I had Lithuanian guests for dinner once and cooked a ham. I put out a jar of English mustard and one of the guests dolloped it onto the meat like it was mayonnaise. He spluttered for a good five minutes!
