An interesting fact that in Ukrainian, we say: "Смачного!" Pronounced as "Smachnoho!" in English) before we start a meal - it's similar to the French "Bon appetite!" Then the other person replies: "Дякую, заімно"! "Dyakuyu, zayimno!" (Which basically means: "Thank-you, may it taste well for you!")
Thought I'd add this to this 'tasty' conversation! :)
No, there is no connection between them. It is "smaczne" because "jedzenie" is a neutral noun. If there were "obiad" instead of "jedzenia", then the ending would be "y", so it would be "smaczny obiad" because "obiad" is a masculine noun. If there were a feminine noun, then the ending would be "a", so it would be "smazcna".
You look at the basic, Nominative singular form of the noun.
If it ends with a consonant, it's probably masculine.
If it ends with -a, it's probably feminine.
If it ends with -o, -e, -ę, -um, it's neuter.
You'll encounter exceptions, even in some basic vocabulary, but most nouns will work as above.
Cant smaczne be translated to delicious? Tasty is not something that people usually say...
