Two indexes and extensive cross-referencing make it easy to find what you're looking for.
Review: Sharyn Tyler Herbst lifted the phrase "Never Eat More Than You Can Lift" from the mouth of Miss Piggy to make it the title for her 12th volume on food. This is a work to love and get lost in. It makes you want to read many of its "1500 Notable Quotables About Edibles and Potables" out loud to anyone around, or reach for the phone to share choice finds. Information about specific foods, cooking tips, and recipes set this book apart from others in the genre of culinary quote collections. Herbst also draws from a wider range than others, quoting from sources as ancient as Aristophanes, contemporary as Miss Piggy, famous as F. Scott Fitzgerald, and obscure as Robert Orben. You'll find quotes here that do not appear in other books of this type. Add this to the appealing look of this book and you have a delicious volume.
