Hi. I'm trying to find recipes that are named after professions, especially those in other languages that aren't obvious to English speakers. For example: I just recently found out (from this site) that "chicken cacciatore" means "hunter's chicken," "pasta puttanesca" means (ahem) "prostitute's pasta," "pasta alla carbonara" can be interpreted as "coal miner's pasta," "sole meuniere" means "sole of the female tailor." Off the top of your heads, can you think of any other dishes in any languages whose names come from professions? Random, I know, but I was told that you Food52ers would be to the go-to group for this one.
Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give me!
