Miam (mee-AHM) is one of my absolute favorite French words.

It’s an onomatopoeia that mimics the sound of eating, much like “yum” or “nom” in English.

Children use it in doubles (miam-miam!) to describe tasty food and young adults use it to describe someone attractive. Pepper some of your conversation with the occasional “miam!” and I promise you’ll be hooked.
