  • A blend of history, etymology, anecdotes, origins and culture of food. How often have you found yourself in the kitchen in the middle of preparing a recipe when you come across an unfamiliar term? Not recognizing a word and its meaning can diminish or slow down the pleasure of preparing a dish. Or perhaps you have a love of words and are intrigued by their historical background and linguistic origins. Cooking is a wonderful adventure especially when the terms, definitions and historical origins of words in recipes are familiar. The Cook's Essential Kitchen Dictionary defines 4,500 key food words and provides a wealth of historical background for many of them. For anyone who cooks or who simply loves food, this book is a vital reference source and an outstanding cookbook supplement. The book includes: - Food and alcohol terms listed alphabetically for easy reference - Illustrations throughout particularly for fruits and vegetables - British, American and many foreign language cooking terms - Complete pasta appendix - Wonderful selection of fascinating food quotes and anecdotes - Basic cooking methods. The rich and rare culinary information describes subjects as varied as Humble Pie and Hanger Steak to Squawroot and Stracchino.
