While this volume will educate and assist the novice cook, it'll enhance the life of even the most experienced chef. In addition to being a helpful resource, it's interestingly entertaining. Buy it!

I bought the second edition of the 'companion' six years ago and use it all the time - clear and comprehensive definitions that even my husband can follow. Also contains over 50 pages of related cooking issues. I will definitely be buying her latest edition!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is a must for any restaurant to have on hand, waitstaff hear a word they don't know and we send them to this book, not only do they learn something new but they learn it better because we had them read it instead of just trying to explain.Was this review helpful?
