Words that feel good in your mouth

It’s been very hot here lately.

VERY hot.

And my air conditioner really doesn’t work well, so my house is extra-hot.

Let’s just say that cooking has been minimal of late.

So for today, all I’ve got to offer you is whimsy.

I was just sitting here at my desk at work today and all of a sudden the word “mirin” popped into my head. Isn’t that a fun word? Mirin. I love it. It just feels good in my mouth.

This is the kind of thing that makes my boyfriend shake his head and smile as he tells me how weird I am. Another example: the time I made a comparison between Doberman Pinschers and green grapes.

What can I say? My mind works in circuitous, convoluted ways. Apparently it’s different than the way other people’s brains work.

Back to the words.

Thinking about how nice mirin feels in my mouth, got me thinking of other fun culinary words. Here’s my list of culinary words that are fun to say:

  • Mirin
  • Osso bucco
  • Spatchcock
  • Semifreddo
  • Absinthe
  • Acidopholous
  • Baba ghanoush
  • Dacquoise
  • Ganache
  • Umami
  • Jagermeister
  • Langostino
  • Paillard
  • Quinoa
