Description
(back cover) Open this new fourth edition of The New Food Lover's Companion and you'll find more information about good food and dining than ever, including ingredients and methods for preparing many ethnic foods, as well as descriptions of exotic produce and other unusual ingredients. Among the standard subjects defined and explained are cooking tools and techniques, meat cuts, breads, pastas, and literally everything else related to good food and enjoyable dining. Appendices cover many topics, including suggestions for substituting recipe ingredients, a microwave oven conversion chart, and much more. The New Food Lover's Companion is a reference guide--not a cookbook--but it includes hundreds of cooking tips plus an extensive bibliography of recommended cookbooks. Praise for previous editions "The quintessential food reference book . . . a bible for anyone seriously interested in cooking." --Adventures in Dining "Essential for anyone who talks, eats or thinks about food." --Bev Bennett, Chicago Sun-Times The indispensable landmark volume that defines thousands of American and foreign culinary terms."--Paula Hamilton, Oakland Tribune "Comprehensive, accurate, interesting, well-written, and inexpensive--it is rare that a reference book meets all of these criteria, but Food Lover's Companion does!" --Booklist "A wealth of information . . . a small culinary gem." --Pat Dailey, Chicago Tribune
