Word of the Day: unctuousness

sounds like - UNC*chew*us*nes

What is it? An adjective

Defined - Containing or composed of oil or fat

Where was it used? In Top Chef Masters on May 5, 2010 by Chef Jonathan Waxman

When was it used? During the infamous "tag team" quickfire challenge. Chef Waxman was the last member of his team to work on their (winning) seafood dish. We also learn he's claustrophobic.

Quote - "I did some tinkering. I added a good amount of butter. Now the butter will give an
unctuousness to the sauce, plus it will mellow some of those acidic qualities".
