Overview

The brand-new fourth edition of this widely praised reference guide has been updated with new information for everyone, including lovers of ethnic foods and health food aficionados. The authors have added many all-new entries on exotic produce and other unusual ingredients. An earlier edition of The New Food Lover's Companion was hailed by Bon Appetit magazine as "one of the best reference books we've seen, a must for every cook's library." This new edition has even more to offer! Among the myriad foods and culinary subjects defined and explained are cooking tools and techniques, meat cuts, breads, pastas, international foods, cheeses, eggs and omelets, herbs and spices, fruits and vegetables, candies and desserts, wines and cocktails, and literally everything else related to good food and enjoyable dining. Handy and helpful appendices cover a wide range of food-related topics. They include suggestions for substituting recipe ingredients, high-altitude baking adjustments, a microwave oven conversion chart, recommended safe cooking temperatures for various meats and fish, a guide to reading food package labels, seasoning suggestions to enhance favorite dishes, a food additives directory, 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 and other food-related literature. Here in one volume is an invaluable companion for cooks and for everybody else who loves good food. More than 6,700 entries plus line art that shows retail cuts of lamb, pork, beef, and veal.

    Great!

    It's really not difficult to navigate if you know how. I looked for apple for instance, when the book was open about halfway through, and the first hit was on pineapple, with "apple" highlighted. Certainly that is not what I wanted. But when I scrolled to the beginning of the book before using "find", apple came up right away. It may take a try or two to get what I'm looking for, but I'm okay with that. The convenience of looking up a term or type of food when meeting with foodie friends (especially the ones who are "always right")...well, it just saves the day!


    Now, if Nook would please make the Scrabble Dictionary available...I'd be a really happy camper!

    Great Information- Not good as an ebook though

    I think that this book is quite useful and a great thing to have on hand in a restaurant but unfortunately not great as an ebook. Looking up a term takes too long on the ebook and navigating through it is a bit difficult as well. Again, great book just buy the paperback.
