5 Trendy Terms of 2015 That Prove Food Is Bae
In 2015, we heard a lot of interesting new words and phrases, whether your outfit was on fleek, your special someone was bae or your coworker was throwing shade. The year also brought great food slang, some of which dictionaries now even officially recognize. The New York Times recently shared 10 new food terms that rose to stardom in the past year. Here are our faves, with some recipes for inspiration. Or should we say foodspo? (Which made the 2015 list, formerly known as food porn and used on social media to tag a mouthwatering dish).
Cookie Butter: Regular PB just isn’t gonna cut it anymore. Introducing cookie butter, generally made from crushed cookies, butter, condensed milk and peanut butter. It was first made in Belgium and the Netherlands with local spice cookies.

Piecaken: First there was the turducken (turkey, duck, chicken combo), and now there’s the piecaken, which is exactly what it sounds like. According to NYT, piecaken became popular this year after pastry chef Zac Young of David Burke Group restaurants coined the term.

Wine o’clock, Beer o’clock: This term was actually added to the online Oxford English Dictionary in 2015 and means the right time of day to start drinking a certain beverage. Which is any time during the holiday season, right?
Try This Recipe: Rosemary Mezcal Apple Cider (via Kale & Caramel)
Climatarian: You’ll find these people eating local and opting for pork and poultry instead of beef and lamb to limit gas emissions. They’re also big on using every part of the food (think: apple cores) to reduce food waste and ultimately tackle climate change.

Cat cafe: Here’s another one that was added to the online Oxford English Dictionary this year. Cat cafes originated in Asia and are basically fancy coffee bars with cats roaming around everywhere. We even WENT to a cat yoga cafe this year. Yup.
