9780764162411: The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion

Based on Barron’s popular and authoritative The Food Lover’s Companion, this enlarged and enhanced new reference volume was written for discerning home chefs and everybody else who wants to become more knowledgeable about good food and elegant dining. Alphabetically arranged entries define and describe―

  • Fruits and vegetables, both well-known and exotic varieties
  • Meat cuts and preparation methods
  • Fish, shellfish, and ways to cook and serve them
  • Breads, pastas, and other grain-based foods
  • Cooking tools and techniques
  • Reliable ways to preserve and store foods
  • Herbs, spices, and their many uses . . . and much more

    Miniature glossaries are interspersed throughout the text. For instance, following the entry for apple, an “Apple Glossary” provides descriptions and recommended uses of 28 different varieties. A generous array of sidebar features throughout the book offers quick tips on food purchases, as well as Fast Facts and advice on preparation, serving, and dining. For example, immediately following the "al dente" entry in reference to cooking pasta, readers will find this sidebar:
    Fast Facts
    Al Dente

  • An obvious line flowing through the thickest part of the pasta means it's not done
  • Lingering heat will continue to cook the pasta for a short time after it's removed from the hot cooking water

    More than 6,700 entries are supplemented with a general introduction, hundreds of illustrations, and pithy quotations about food and dining from chefs and gourmets. The new deluxe hardcover binding with dust jacket includes a ribbon place marker and golden-tipped page edges.

    (front flap)
    Based on Barron's popular and authoritative The New Food Lover's Companion, this enlarged and enhanced new reference volume was written for discerning home chefs and everybody else who wants to become more knowledgeable about good food and elegant dining. Alphabetical entries describe foods of every kind as well as preparation methods, cooking utensils, serving suggestions, preserving and storing methods, and more. An exciting new feature is the 40 glossaries that have been created for entries which have many subtypes. For example, the Apple Glossary has entries for 27 different varieties of apple, and the Citrus Glossary has entries for 24 different types of citrus. Smaller glossaries are interspersed throughout the text and larger glossaries are presented at the back of the book. The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion is a reference volume--not a cookbook--but it includes hundreds of cooking tips and enlightens its readers on those many terms and preparation methods that too many ordinary cookbooks leave unexplained. If you relish good food and the best in dining The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion is a book you'll refer to time and time again.
