New Food Word Alert: Carnevoyeur

Move over, flexitarians. There’s a new ridiculous word for describing how people eat today. Via The Rambling Epicure:

A carnevoyeur is “a vegetarian who derives satisfaction from watching other people eat meat or hearing about the eating of meat.”

It refers to the type of person who says she’s a vegetarian and talks about it ad nauseum, but can’t resist asking if she can have a taste when she sees a plate of boeuf bourguignon or crispy fried bacon.

Know any carnevoyeurs?
