Today's word is 'pancheon'.
Last Saturday's word, if you want to be picky, but I didn't meet it until this morning, because that's when I was reading the 'Cook' supplement of Saturday's Guardian. Asked what is her favourite kitchen tool, Regula Ysewijn replies "my pancheon". There's no explanation, though it's obvious from the context that it's a large earthenware bowl - an image search turns up plenty of them - straight-sided rather than round, used for making bread or cream.
The column doesn't seem to have made it into the online edition (or maybe just 'not yet') but Regula Ysewijn's website has some wonderful photographs, and photo essays on subjects like 'Eels, pie and mash and her blog mixes historical recipes with essays about food production.
