Welcome to the Vancouver Lexicon. Its purpose is to pin down the patois of the City of Vancouver by recording its toponyms, nicknames, slang terms, personalities, places, and other Van-centric things. Full A-Z here.
White-Person | verb, cooking, slang | The uncommon (but no less prejudicial) culinary act of altering a dish to please the palate of an assumed-to-be unadventurous or spice-intolerant Caucasian person. Perpetrated in restaurants and homes without malice.
The verb is employed (here) in its English form, but vernacular synonyms (mostly common nouns) abound in other languages, some pejoratively.
See also: Gwai Lo.
Usage: “Woah, mine is so much spicier than yours! I hope the cook doesn’t white-person your whole dinner. I’ll tell the waiter you can take it…”
