About the Author:

Ron Herbst holds a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management and spent the better part of a decade working in various restaurants around the country. He is the co-author of four critically acclaimed books with Sharon Tyler Herbst, including The New Food Lover's Companion, which is currently featured on the Food Network's website as their go-to food reference guide, and The Wine Lover's Companion.

Review:

"What's the difference between regular, red, and white ginseng? What's in carrageenan, a substance often seen on ingredients lists? And what are some dos and don'ts when using chopsticks? More than 7,200 entries in this attractive dictionary-style work answer these questions and many more in straightforward language that will help even the most novice cooks. The material has a long genealogy: it's based on the fifth edition of The Food Lover's Companion, the first incarnation of which Sharon Herbst began more than 26 years ago. Entries define an item and discuss its history and related foodstuffs. Sprinkled throughout but concentrated at the end of the book are glossaries (new to the deluxe edition) that present facts on types of food and drink such as cocktails, sauces, and spices. VERDICT: Useful for recipe collections, home cooks, and children doing reports on foods and food-related culture."
--Library Journal

"...It remains a must-have for anyone who wants to know more about cooking terms."
