faggot

Definitions

Food

  • The name applied to a bunch of herbs tied with string and used as a bouquet garni
  • A pâté of liver, salt pork or bacon, herbs, spices, seasoning, minced onion and extender such as breadcrumbs, oatmeal or mashed potato, formed into a tennis-ball size and covered with pig’s caul. Traditionally made with liver, lungs, spleen, pork scraps and fat. Simmered or baked.

Slang

  • noun an unattractive or disreputable woman. This now outdated term, some three hundred years old, is still heard in the phrase ‘old faggot’.
  • noun a homosexual man. It is not certain whether this term is an embellished version of fag, derives from the old British sense of the word (above), or is a native American invention. The second alternative appears the most likely.
