Even the Oxford Dictionary loves Rachael Ray

Oh, for frack’s sake. The Washington Post reports that Rachael Ray’s catchword EVOO – that’s short for extra-virgin olive oil, for those of you not yet in the know — is to be included in the 2007 edition of the Oxford American College Dictionary.

How many times do I have to say this, people? Save this shite for the Oxford Dictionary of Slang!

  1. I know this is an editing blog, but I must comment on the “EVOO” fury gastronomically. She has popularized the use of extra virgin (how does a person become “extra virgin”?) olive oil far beyond it’s true value as a recipe ingredient. Sure, as a dip for fresh bread, “EVOO” may supply a special taste treat, but, as a base for sauteing, basting, oiling grills, it’s greater cost makes in an expensive everyday ingredient.
