Dictionary of Modern Gastronomy

The Food Section has a list of “modern gastronomy terms” – such as Honey Laundering (cheap Chinese honey shipped first to Philippines to be relabeled to avoid U.S. taxes), Coffee Name (alias you give to Starbucks if your name is difficult to spell or pronounce) and Ambient Ice Cream – environmentally friendly ice cream sold at room temperature for you to bring home and freeze. Read all of the terms over The Food Section.

    I love the coffee name. Most people mistake my boyfriend Price’s name with Bryce or same some ‘Price is Right’ comment so he has a coffee name. :-)
