Words Jamie Oliver would never say

Jamie's bad words

Jamie Oliver recently posted on Instagram a photo of all the words he would never say. These include "moist, gush, encrusted, minge, flange, stuffed, gash, and smeared."

Actually, Oliver appears to be consistently concerned about vocabulary. Last year, a server at one of his restaurants leaked a long list of words they were supposed to say to push specials. As reported at Eater, these included  "outrageous," "dollop," "legendary," "wicked," "mega," "proper rustic" and "scrummy."

Maybe we'll start using "scrummy", which apparently is a combination of scrumptious and yummy. Somehow, though, it sounds like a rugby term.

    I'd add "chunky" to that list.

    And I would like to add "kissed". As in "cinnamon-kissed blueberry muffins" or "lemon-kissed pasta salad".
