Could Totally Go for a Palatschinke Right About Now

So I'm kind of a huge fan of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Not because Scripps pays my salary (which it does), nor because it's my one chance a year to be an unabashed nationalist (which it is), but rather because the food vocabulary is always fascinating.

Both Eat Me Daily and the The Life Vicarious have roundups of this year's spelled food; TLV takes it a step further with where to find those foods in New York.

Two additional notes:

1) The Caerphilly at Tonjes Farm Dairy (Saturdays at the Union Square Greenmarket) is highly recommended.

2) "Deipnosophist" has the same derivation as "deipnetic," which I have now used in the blog twice. I'm pretty sure Katherine owes me a drink.
