how to say “delicacy” in Hebrew

מַעֲדָן

The Hebrew word for delicacyמעדן

– comes from the root ע.ד.נ
, the letters making up Eden as in גן עדן
– the Garden of Eden. Don’t confuse מעדן with מדען
, which means scientist.

The word in context:

היא שמה על השולחן כל מיני מעדנים.

She placed on the table all kinds of delicacies.

Like the word מיץ

juice – which has been hijacked so that it refers not only to genuine fruit juice but to sugar drinks as well, so too מעדן might refer not only to delicacies but also to simple delights such as Milki and chocolate pudding.
