Alliacious, suaveolent, conflagrant: these unusual words are a struggle to pronounce, let alone spell.
But while you may have never used any them in a sentence before, these words can all be used to describe your plate of food in a deliciously specific way.
They are among 20 of Countdown star Susie Dent's favourite foodie terms, which the queen of Dictionary Corner has shared exclusively with Femail Food&Drink.
And they in turn are just a few of the 101 words to describe each mouthful that she has collated for Sainsbury's in a new free book called The Taste Dictionary, out today.
