A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
If you have ever cooked with whatever is available in the fridge or pantry, you will relate to this week’s selection of words. We didn’t start with a recipe in mind. Just picked a bunch of words and tossed them in the pan.
What came out after we let them wrestle for a while is here this week. Enlightening, tasty, nourishing, filling? You decide.
adjective: Of orangish-red or reddish-orange color.
noun: Such a color.
From French coquelicot (red poppy), from its resemblance to the crest of a rooster, from coq (rooster). Earliest documented use: 1795. Also see, coxcomb.
“Do you know, I saw the prettiest hat you can imagine, in a shop window in Milsom Street just now -- very like yours, only with coquelicot ribbons instead of green.”
David M. Shapard; The Annotated Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen; Anchor Books; 2013.
