Kickshaw is a noun that refers to a fancy dish or delicacy.

Our word of the day is from the French word quelque chose (KWEL a kay CHOSE ay) which means roughly ‘of what kind?” The word’s new meaning, ‘a fancy meal’ caught on soon after migrating to English.

Back in my tiny home town, we weren’t used to much fine eating, but here in Manhattan we seem to enjoy a brand new kickshaw every night.
