European Food Names Literally Translated

The names of certain foods from around the world can leave you a little perplexed if you’re not completely sure what it is you’re ordering. But finding out what the names mean can be somewhat off-putting and you might just lose your appetite…

Linguistics is a strange thing. So, we decided to dig a little deeper into some of the names given to traditional foods from different European countries such as France, Denmark and Germany.

We then took those names and literally translated them into English… This is where the fun starts. Some are hilarious, some are disturbing but we’re pretty certain they all taste absolutely delicious! Who doesn’t want to eat a dead grandma or a poo satchel for lunch, right?
