How many times have you been writing brilliantly without pause only to stumble over the correct spelling of the word hors d’ouevre? I have to check every time I use it. This time, however, it was pad thai that sent me to the Internet not so much for a spell check but to verify whether or not the ‘T’ in thai was capitalized.
My search led me to UC Style: How to capitalize, spell, punctuate food, culinary terms, where I found the answer to the pad thai question. This is perfect for an author who loves to feed her characters (Edible Fiction). I’m definitely stocking my Writing Toolbox with this important contribution to The Weight of Words.
I hope you will find this site as helpful as I did.
