"Start sessioning!" That was the cry when Session Kitchen opened last fall, and although the menu -- and the portion control based on "sessions" -- has been tweaked, in her recent review of Session Kitchen Gretchen Kurtz says she could still do without having to even mention "sessioning" to her server. And that's not the only food term she'd like to see thrown in the trash. See also: Five food terms that need to be trashed -- right after "session"

Anything related to molecular-gastronomy is going to get the mental heave-ho from me, I'm afraid.

Froth, foam, soil... sounds like we're throwing out spoiled items rather than eating fresh ones.

What current culinary term would you like to see banned? "Mixologist" might be leading the pack, but don't miss the exchange here over the use of "foodie."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
