Here in almost 500 pages is a descriptive compendium of just about everything we eat and how we cook it. Arranged alphabetically from Abalone to Zampone, the majority of entries in the book deal with the ingredients and processes used in cooking. Tom Stobart says in his Introduction ‘Ingredients are the fundamentals of cookery and every cook who hopes to excel should know about them...’ Likewise with methods and science in the kitchen, Stobart explains all the common processes from bottling brewing, brining, curing, smoking and vacuuming.

Hundreds of ingredients are described, with English and foreign synonyms and scientific names; recipes are given in many cases to illustrate the use of the foodstuff in question. Cooking processes are explained in great and illuminating detail. The aim is both to entertain and to instruct--in particular, to give a sense of the essence and individuality of each ingredient. Tom Stobart traveled widely, both as an explorer and a film maker, and his book was informed by an eye for telling details.

Many fans say they would be lost without this book, which segues effortlessly between exhaustive reference work and handy recipe book, and back again. It explains the world of the kitchen, whether you're a beginner or an old hand, revealing the facts behind foods, equipment and techniques. Stobart describes how baking powder works, for instance, the temperature at which bacteria grow, and how to make your own tomato ketchup, so every time you dip into this book, you'll be better equipped to return to the stove.

Review:

‘A MUST, comprehensive, well-organized and well-written...This is a serious and important work of reference, but it is also extremely readable. Those who acquire it will find themselves dipping into it constantly and that it affords them as much pleasure as instruction.’ (Alan Davidson, author of The Oxford Companion to Food)

Book Description Grub Street, 2016. Condition: New. If ¿the recipe calls for a Bresse chicken, but any chicken will do¿ is the no-nonsense approach, Tom Stobart¿s Encyclopaedia embraces the nonsense.

There are no recipes as such, but abundant details about preparations ¿ such as how to make Thousand Year Eggs and sourdough starter. Seller Inventory # 504033
