More Information about Food Idioms:

Idioms are words or phrases that have a different meaning than the literal meaning of the word or words. There are many examples of food idioms that are commonly used in the English language. They are not only fun to use but are sure to get your point across creatively in conversation.

Remember, food idioms do not literally mean what they say. For example, if you say someone is a “bad apple” this implies that the person is a negative influence on others or is troublesome in nature.

Here are some helpful websites and YouTube videos about food idioms.:
