1. Crumb

Crumb is a beautiful word, closely followed by its rival "crumble" and close cousin "crumbed". It has risen in popularity since The Great British Bake Off's Paul Hollywood used it in every flipping episode of the baking show.

3. Drench

What usually happens when you forget your umbrella. When used in a foodie context, drench suddenly sounds unbelievably desirable.

4. Toast

One of the finest breakfasts known. Also the perfect excuse to drink Champagne.

5. Crackle

We could say the word "crackle" all day long. Of course, it would get us some rather strange attention in the supermarket. But there's no denying it's a very satisying thing to do.

6. Sizzle

Best when it relates to sausages, bacon, chops ... basically any pork-based product.

7. Glaze

Excuse us a moment. We'll just be staring at these doughnuts for the next hour or two.

8. Kumquat

This exotic little fruit makes apples, pears and bananas sound positively boring.

9. Syllabub

A food that manages to make you feel retro and modern at the same time. Syllabub is a creamy, boozy dessert that was around in Tudor times but has made a bit of a comeback of late. Rolls off the tongue beautifully.

10. Melt

From cheese to chocolate, many, many foods are improved by the art of melting them. Not applicable to ice-cream.
