Top 10 Food and Drink Words You’ve Never Heard

Because I’m a closet book nerd, I spend a lot of time reading books about books and books about words. No, don’t laugh. And yes, they exist. Much to my surprise, there are a plethora of food words other than “delicious” to describe this food concept we all love so much. Here are my top 10 new favorites:

    10. Bedinner (v)- to treat to dinner.

He better bedinner me after making me sleep with his cat.

    9. Semese (adj)- half eaten.

We probably don’t use this word because Americans would never leave something half eaten. Seconds, please.

    8. Surfeited (adj)- oppressed or disordered by eating too much.

This happens to me daily. We all know what it feels like.

    7. Deipnosophist(n)- a person who is learned in the art of dining.

Is this the word that will replace “foodie”? Maybe.

    6. Moreish (adj)- encouraging continued indulgence (said of food or drink).

There’s no surprise that this word also resembles Mother.
