Food Word of the Day: Nacarat

This is not strictly speaking a food word – it could be used to describe anything. However, it satisfies two of my criteria – it’s a lovely-sounding word and it’s evocative. So I will leave you for the weekend with the image of a burning orange sunset being enjoyed with a delicious cocktail in hand. Read more

Food Word of the Day: Edacious

I’m seriously behind schedule today. I was out buying the remainder of my seeds, and then of course I had to plant some. And water the ones that were already planted, which involves hiking about ten 10kg buckets of water from the house to the field. After all that work, I had an edacious appetite. Read more

Food Word of the Day: Agraffe

Getting a bit technical today, but haven’t you always wondered what that thing was called?! Read more

Food Word of the Day: Muktuk

Some days I pick the words as much for how they sound as what they mean. Today is one of those days. I love the sound of the word muktuk, especially when I say it with my Dublin accent. (It becomes muhk-tuhk rather than mahk-tahk.) I’m an adventurous eater and I love to travel, so I hope to try muktuk someday. Read more

Food Word of the Day: Pettitoes

Somehow the word pettitoes feels more genial and appealing than the much-maligned alternative, trotter. Read more

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! Read more

Food Word of the Day: Snug

This one will be familiar to those from Ireland or who have visited Ireland. I do miss Irish pub culture – the craic, the banter, the music, the glorious Guinness and the cosy snug where you can curl up undisturbed with a good book. Read more

Food Word of the Day: Sapid

The antithesis (!) of and antidote to yesterday’s slumgullion.

Food Word of the Day: Slumgullion

I stumbled upon this word and love both how it sounds and what it means. I can’t wait to find an excuse to use it. Read more

Food Word of the Day: Quahog

I’ve never eaten one of these, but I love cockles, mussels and all other bivalves that I’ve tried. I believe these are now being farmed in Europe – I must keep an eye out for them. In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy the sound of the word. Read more

Food Word of the Day: Jeroboam

I’d imagine these are quite tricky to handle – a box with a tap on the side sounds easier to use. That said, I know quite a few people who would like their wine to come in one of these! Read more

Food Word of the Day: Turophile

As a true turophile, cheese is one of the foods I miss most living here in Lithuania. It’s not that Lithuania doesn’t have cheese, but more that Lithuanian tastes lean towards curd cheese (farmers’ cheese) or very mild cheeses whereas I like strong, smelly cheeses. I recently received two gifts of cheese from overseas – one from Ireland and one from France. Both were very welcome! Read more

Food Word of the Day: Riddle

We got to witness this process on our tour of the cellars at Taittinger while on our tour of Europe. You can see a video of the process showing the speed of the riddlers here. Read more

Food Word of the Day: Pinguid

I am a closet logophile. I consider myself well-read but I am regularly surprised and delighted to come across new words, particularly when they are related to food and eating. Sometimes, though, despite there being over a quarter of a million words to choose from, I like to make up my own. Composite words like “delucious” can be both fun and descriptive. Read more
