The Friday Find: Zakuska

March 1, 2013

Emily found our new favorite word this week:

zakuska \zuh-KOOS-kuh\, noun:

an hors d’oeuvre.

This Russian word for a snack, zakuska, entered the lexicon in the mid 1880s as a derivative of kusát meaning “to bite.”

zakuskas

Since our love for light bites or “zakuskas” is endless – we wanted to share a few favorites!
