Would you love me or hate me if I called you a Feinschmecker?

Have you noticed how menus are peppered with words that most people pretend to know because they don’t want to appear stupid.

Here’s a fun article that lists some words that you’re bound to know and a few that you don’t but once you learn will be able to impress your friends and the sometimes snooty wait person.

I hope you find the article as much as amuse-bouching as I did.





  1. Only knew four of those words/phrases, which varied from amusing to disgusting.

    Fave – Amuse-bouche
    Disgusting (yuck!!!!!) – Odori-don

    What’s your most/least favorite foreign foodie word?
