Wondrous Words Wednesday-June 24

Bermudaonion asks you to share new words that you have learned during your reading adventures in the last week. Feel free to join in the fun!

Here is a new word that I found while reading Cutting Loose by Nadine Dajani:

Carpaccio: (kär-pä'chō) Very thinly sliced raw meat or fish, especially beef or tuna, garnished with a sauce.

Here is how carpaccio was used on page 290:

I said that's just because the appetizer in question happened to be octopus carpaccio marinated in white truffle oil and served with lemon sorbet and micro lemongrass.

So what new words did you learn this week?

I've seen this on cooking shows, but never actually worked with it.

I feel like I should have known that word, but I didn't. Thanks for playing along today!

Carpacio is great if you like sushi.

Thanks for the mention : )

I've hear of this before, but never eaten it. It just sounds kind of yucky to me.
