Here are a few foodie words I suggest you don't use in my presence, lest I think less of you.
Barista or barrister. I care not. It is the person who makes the coffee, the coffee maker.
Degustation. This word would be high on my list of ugly sounding words. Disgusting? De-gas? What ever it is, I am sure you will come away feeling hungry and cheated.
Jus. The perfectly well known words such as gravy or sauce surely are sufficient. Calling gravy jus in a pub is wrong.
Fusion, especially influences. It makes me think my meal may have been bombarded with nuclear rays. I'll have my lamb chop unfused, thanks.
Any pet foodie words you dislike?
