Nice Words - Is this a "salmagundi"?
My niece, Pascale Kerry Kleinburg (now there's a great cultural and gastronomic mix!) served this for a light family / friends lunch - a great mix, fresh, uplifting, tasty, relaxed.
Billy Connelly once told a gag about how he loves the sound of certain words even though they're difficult to use in everyday speech (e.g hypotenuse and barrathea).
I’ve painted a wall in the house “eau de nil” just because I like saying it.
I drink “Muscat de Baume de Venise” with blue cheese for the same reason.
A “salmagundi” is a 17th century word for an arranged mixture of anything cold - meats, fish, fresh,and pickled vegetables. So Pascale, could this be a salmagundi? (A cold collation is sadly dated and has echoes of the Woolworths cafeteria and a malt vinegar shaker.)
How about also adding…
Jentacular, - meaning before breakfast.
"I need my jentacular cup of tea before I can even speak!"
"A jentacular walk around the neighbourhood sets me up for the day."
Prandial – relating to a meal
"A Negroni is still my preferred pre-prandial cocktail."
"Post-prandial coffee doesn’t keep me awake, thank goodness!"
