Overview

French for Food Lovers is a wordbook for French terms of cooking, food, and especially French cuisine. Think of it as a starter kit - or maybe you've already started experimenting with French techniques. This does not show you how to cook, but it does help with the terminology.
French is not the easiest language to learn, and one should avoid making assumptions about what a French word means. "Prune," for example, means "plum" - just one of the faux amis that can mislead you.
A basic pronunciation guide is included, to help with hearing or saying the French terms. But don't worry, no grammar is included.
