I really enjoy cooking, and I am an at home cook, but I would really like to have as much knowledge as possible .  What site is a  good, reliable, and accurate source for information concerning ingredients, and dishes?

Epicurious has a good food dictionary. Even wikipedia is often useful in that regard.

I have it Ed . I lent it to a young man who thinking of entering the field. He asked me 7 months ago what would be the best book to read for this very thing. Of the 4 books I handed him, that was on of them.

Last week I hosted a party and I invited this young man to bring some hors d'oeuvres....he brought platters of various amuse buches but what impressed me most was that when asked about his smoked salmon , this young man, took the time, and smoked the salmom in his backyard yard.

I asked him why ? why did he go through so much trouble ? and he said that he was "inspired" by Escoffier, he is reading the book for the second time now. This is someone who never stepped into a kitchen, but I believe he has a gift.
