    Vinaigre [vinagre] de Yema

    The brand name, Presidente commonly associated as a distiller of brandy, also makes a vinegar. They style it: Vinaigre de Yema. I know Yema is the yolk of an egg, but what does this mean, figuratively? That is compared with other vinegars?

    enlightened

    The context is: the inventor of instant noodles "Peel off the lid. Pour boiling water. Steep for three minutes. Stir well and serve. Nothing was easier. Of course the unenlightened could stumble sometimes, burning their tongues" How will you translate that proposition (bold) to Italian? Grazie

    Pues exactamente eso. ¿Existe algún equivalente en inglés para decir "deje cocinar hasta que se dore"? ¿o "cocine hasta que esté dorado?"... Si estuvieramos habalando de coinar carnes.

    Wafer

    Hi Everyone, How do you translate "wafer"? The cookie in question is very thin, about 1/16 of an inch. Biscoito seems wrong. I've seen "biscoito folhado," but that refers to a cookie made with a type of massa folhada. Any suggestions? Thanks, Casapa

    Vanilla sugar
