Short Gastronomic Glossary: English-French-Swedish
This glossary contains words and expressions that you may encounter when you go shopping for food. It is based on real life experience which is why some translations are different from what you might find in (some) dictionaries. For example: all dictionaries that I have seen translates the French chantarelle to the Swedish kantarell, which you can easily see is a faulty translation by going to the market and taking a look at the chantarelles.
The Glossary is split into sections by subject matter.
- Cheese – Fromages – Ost
