Word of the day: weft

The word of the day is weft:

  1. Textiles. filling (def 5).
  2. a woven fabric or garment.
O.E. weft, wefta, from wefan "to weave" (see weave).


"The experiments in The Food Lab might not make it past the scrutiny of academic peer review, but the scientific method is proudly on display, flaunting its ability to tease out the weft within the tapestry of cuisine."
