    An outstanding single resource for the professional or the cook in your house!

    I bought it as a gift for my wife who sells professional quality kitchen tools. She enjoys being a true expert on all things food for her customers and friends and this book no doubt will enhance her knowledge on that score. Why do I like this book? It's organized. It's practical. It's FULL of 2500+ beautiful pictures, anecdotes, and information on exotic as well as everyday foods.

    Organized - There are 10 chapters: Fish & Seafood; Meat; Vegetables; Herbs; Nuts & Seeds; Spices; Dairy & Eggs; Fruits; Grains, Rice Pasta & Noodles; and Oils, Vinegars & Flavorings. Sharing their knowledge with you are 20 contributing authors from around the world, who have travelled extensively and are highly accomplished in their respective fields.

    Practical - Regardless of chapter each food group contains a set of "Buy", "Store" and "Eat" set of suggestions so you know characteristics to look for, how to properly store your purchases and how to prepare/use them. Also unique and useful are the many "flavor pairing" suggestions for each ingredient. While there are few actual recipes in the book, there are "Classic Recipes" throughout each chapter.

    The whole is greater than the sum of the parts - While this is a reference book at heart, it encourages you to browse and learn. If you can't travel to place you always wanted to go, you can taste some of its common foods that you may or may not have heard of. Some of these foods or ingredients may spark ideas on how you might change-up one of your own recipes by using something you never thought of before.

    As mentioned in the introduction, there has been an explosion of unique foods that have become available due to advances in technology and our ever shrinking world. Where this book adds value, "It takes you on a fascinating journey and opens your eyes to the vast global pantry.provides you with all you need to know to choose the best ingredients.enabling you to shop with authority and cook with confidence." Enjoy!
