Bride

0

Who ever said it wasn’t the bride’s job to cook? (Asides from me and the rest of the women in the era we live in).

The English word “bride” comes from Old English bryd which, in turn, originates in Old Frisian breid, Old High German brut and many others. Some scholars believe that these came from the Proto Indo European root of bru, meaning to cook or to make broth.

Well that’s nice to know!
