SPOILER:
From a 100-word/phrase (1930s?) WPA list of "NY Soda-Luncheonette Slang and Jargon," published in Kurlansky, Food of a Younger Land.

[Nitpick: #2 and #12 are still normal kitchen words; #11 lives on, sort of, ironically in some kitchens.]

New:

The most expensive food (not wine) you've splurged on to cook at home, as a single item (ie not 15 steaks for a party).

1. Whole foie gras (A class) -- $100
