People relish foods from nearly all of the world's cultures, and perhaps no area of vocabulary hails from such a wide array of languages as the words we use for the things we eat. The 100 words in this book span the gamut of cooking and dining - from ingredients to preparation to serving. The words were selected for their interesting meanings, their delightful sounds, and their marvelous histories. In this verbal kitchen you'll find spices like fenugreek, sauces like nuoc mam, and dishes like baba gannouj, gado gado, and sancocho. Seasoned with mouthwatering recipes and delectable notes that explain where the words come from, "100 Words for Foodies" is the perfect gift for that food lover in your life. Why not being it to your next dinner party? You'll see smiles all around.
