The famed dictionary producers have released their list of new words for September 2017, and the total clocks in at a shocking 250 additions. Many of the words have a culinary bent. Trends include the inclusion of a variety of East Asian ingredients, as well as the continued embrace of all things artisanal. We’ve compiled all the new things you can eat, drink or cook in the acclaimed dictionary and attached some of our recipes, in case you wanted to give Merriam-Webster the Julie and Julia treatment.
