Dining education for foodies

Sometimes in my reading foodie stuff, whether through a book or online or a magazine, I come across some quirky food words that make you scratch your head as to what the heck they are, until the definition helps shed some light.  See what I mean below.

callaloo 1. the edible young green leaves of a plant (as taro or a member of the genus Xanthosoma) of the arum family used as greens  2. a soup or stew made with greens, onions, and crabmeat or pork

oenophile: a lover or connoisseur of wine

pandowdy: a deep-dish spiced apple dessert sweetened with sugar, molasses, or maple syrup and covered with a rich crust

salmagundi: a salad plate of chopped meats, anchovies, eggs, and vegetables arranged in rows for contrast and dressed with a salad dressing
