#008: 355 words to describe food (downloadable poster)

Hello! I hope this article finds you well! ^^ As seasoned blog readers will know, I write a lot about food – on this blog as well as on my Instagram feed. Despite quitting my food business almost two years ago (omg… time flew by…), I am still very much absorbed in thoughts for all-things food. If you see me quietly contemplating something, you betcha my brain is preoccupied with, yes you’ve guessed it, about food. Lol…

My love of food extends to reading about it as well. I love reading not just cookbooks but also food essays, journals and even scientific reports at times. When it’s written well, I marvel at how the words are deliciously composed. I’m not a fan of the word ‘foodporn’ but it does describe how I feel about reading about food.

So, with much respect to the great food writing out there, I thought it’ll be interesting to list the words that describe food. In producing this list hopefully I can expand my food vocabulary to write better?! 🙂 ​

By the way, if there’s any word that you think should be included, let me know-! ​

    1. Dear Kerrilee! Ohhhh! What an honour! It makes me smile from ear to ear thinking that the poster graces the wall of a home economics class! – If you’d like some words swapped let me know, it’s really easy, only a 10 minute job! xx

  2. This is so generous of you! I even learned a new word: olid. And I’d almost forgotten “squidgy”. Love that one. 🙂

    1. hello! That’s so sweet of you to say, thank you! And lol, “squidgy”! Yessss, I love that one too, it’s rather cute! ^^ I also like “minerally” because it’s a bit of a tongue-twister, try saying it 10 times when you’re on the wine!!! ^^

  3. Hi! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. Now i’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look toward new posts.
