Even just a word, this book will help you understand terms, cooking origin, and techniques sometimes only known by professionals!!!

I learned about this book in a cooking class and bought it as a gift for a someone who likes to cook and bake. Although I am not a cooking enthusiast, I may keep this copy and buy another one for the gift because it is great fun to peruse - a wonderful source of information about food and the origin of many food and drink names. People who are interested in words and writing will also like this book.

My husband and I found a copy of an earlier edition of the FLC at a shop on the campus of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park NY. Our fascination with dictionaries led us to take a good look at the book, and to buying a copy. It turned out to be one of the most useful and fascinating purchase we made! I bought 2 copies of a newer edition recently to give as gifts to friends. They were very interested and have continued to thank me for their gifts. Highly recommended.

This by far the most helpful book in my collection. It's worth every penny and I use it when I'm watching the some Food Network shows and the real masters on PBS. I recommend this inexpensive tool for your kitchen tool box. You will refer to it often and use the comprehensive charts in the back of the book. I borrowed it from my local library first, then I decided to get my own copy.

Any Chef, Chef-in-training or natural foodie should have this book on hand at all time! There's really no term or word the book is missing. It's a hand's on food dictionary-an investment!

Every cook should have a copy of this book. My daughter bought copies for herself, her brother & me. I have since bought several as gifts for wedding showers & birthdays.I have recently started to cook more local & organic meals. Some recipes had ingredients listed that I had never heard of. This book has helped me make sense of it all.

I'm in the hospitality catering business and this book is a Bible for creating and developing dishes and menus. I love it so much I bought one for my associate and we try to out-do each other with new words! Worth every penny.
