An A-Z of Food & Drink is an invaluable reference tool--and cookbook supplement--for anybody who cooks, or simply loves food. From Arugula to Zabaglione this veritable feast of gastronomic words and phrases presents the meaning, origin, and development of over 1,200 food and drink terms. Savor foods and drinks named after their place of origin, such as Cheddar, Stilton, and Dublin Bay prawns. Sink your teeth into the etymology of lasagna. Or whet your appetite with wines named after their grape, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling. Seasoned throughout with literary wit and wisdom, An A-Z of Food & Drink also includes hundreds of illuminating quotations on food--meaty enough to spark discussions in the kitchen and light enough to enjoy from your armchair.
