Foodie Word Rant

Working Waterfront has published a “rant about ‘foodie’ words” by prominent food historian Sandy Oliver.

As cooks, we shouldn’t drizzle anything. Most of us who live along the coast are terribly familiar with drizzle. It happens outdoors, often in winter and spring, and leaves our hair damp, and us in a bad mood, if it goes on for many days. It is done by nature, with water, that fine barely visible mist in the air that we feel on our faces, but when we hold out our hand, does not make drops.
