Word of the day gallimaufry

by Christine Lovatt

"...a gallimaufry of Home Counties treats, averaging £15 a main course..."

What a cool word! A gallimaufry is a hotchpotch or an absurd medley, and although it can apply to just about anything, it's appropriate that the above quote comes from a restaurant review, because its original meaning is a hash of various kinds of meats, or a ragout. It comes from Old French galer 'to make merry' + mafrer 'to eat much' from the Dutch maffelen 'to open one's mouth wide'. This word is not used often enough - please try to bring it into your conversation today.
