Today’s Word “trencherman”

trencherman TREN-chuhr-muhn (noun) – A hearty eater.

“Dr. Zollner was arranging his large lunch in front of him with the expertise of a real trencherman.” — Nelson DeMille, ‘Plum Island’

Trencherman is from trencher, “a wooden board or platter on which food is served or carved” (which itself is from Medieval French trencheoir, from Old French trenchier, “to cut,” from Latin truncare, “to lop off, to shorten by cutting”) + man. It is related to trench, “a hole cut into the ground.”
