Food Words Worth Savoring

Goto next slide#2: Ambrosial

Definition:

extremely pleasing to the senses, especially of taste or smell

Example:

"Much as I love apples... it is their curvaceous cousin the pear – voluptuously shaped, scented and floral, dripping with ambrosial juices – that seems most completely to encapsulate the idea of fruity temptation." – Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, The Guardian, October 26, 2012

About the Word:

Ambrosia comes from the Greek word for "immortality"; ambrosia was the food of the Greek and Roman gods (nectar was their drink).
