I happened to come across today’s most Twittered foodie post, namely The Chicago Tribune’s article “Top 10 at 10: Misprounounced foodie words” .

Out of the list, there were three words I had no clue of what they represented. What the heck is Pouilly-Fuisse?  Huitlacoche? Is that a type of hot chocolate from South America? *Actually it is something totally different.*

Then there was the word Pączki. I did an image search for it and fell in love immediately. For those who barely know me…I am a pastry lover. Bring me some sweet delight AND tell me it is some foreign traditional bun or cake and I will love you forever!

Pączki (POONCH-key) seems to be a jelly-type donut and, of course, there are numerous ways to make it. I will have to try it someday.

If you want to read more about Pączki go to this informative website.  Different types of recipes can be found there.

If you want an EYE-FULL of Pączki and the correct (an audio) pronunciation of the word, go to this musical site.

God Bless the Polish!!
