The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion (Deluxe Edition)

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.
