Amusing culinary words and phrases

Are there any culinary words that you find amusing, enchanting, or just fun to let roll off your tongue?

Since I’ve been learning to bake, my favorite is “bigas and poolishes.” It sounds like a couple of folk dances, and whenever I say it, I giggle a little.

Another favorite is “bibimbap.” I know it’s Korean, but the word feels like a samba on my tongue!

Atomic Buffalo Turd

Btw, I thought of a new variation: using the meat pulled from a Buffalo wing and blue cheese inside of the jalapeno instead of a smokie and cream cheese.

Seems more appropriate.

I have to avoid that phrase in my house. I just use “butterfly.” I’ll leave the “why” to your imagination, lol.
