What’s the Word: Aguacate

By Lucasryden @saborkitchen

Because your knife isn’t the only thing that needs sharpening.

The best part about learning a new language is discovering its connections with your everyday life.  When you live in Southern California, Spanish tends to do this a lot.

Aguacate is the Spanish word for avocado.  When you look at it closely, it bears striking resemblance to the infamous salsa bar superstar: guacamole.  That’s not a coincidence.  “Guacamole” is derived from the indigenous Nahuatl words for āhuacatl (avocado) and molli (sauce).   And it sounds way sexier than its English translation.
