Idioms are phrases whose figurative meaning is different from the literal meaning. Recently, I read about a many idioms related to Food/Cooking, which we have been using without thinking, since long. So, I thought of sharing it with my readers and friends, hope you enjoy them, comment your views, share them on your social channels ! 🙂
