The New Wine Lover's Companion: Descriptions of Wines from Around the World
The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion. Sharon Tyler Herbst , Ron Herbst. Alphabetical entries describe foods of every kind as well as preparation methods, cooking utensils, serving suggestions, preserving and storing methods, and more.
An exciting new feature is the 40 glossaries that have been created for entries which have many subtypes. For example, the Apple Glossary has entries for 27 different varieties of apple, and the Citrus Glossary has entries for 24 different types of citrus. Smaller glossaries are interspersed throughout the text and larger glossaries are presented at the back of the book. The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion is a reference volume--not a cookbook--but it includes hundreds of cooking tips and enlightens its readers on those many terms and preparation methods that too many ordinary cookbooks leave unexplained.
More than esteemed contributors including 58 new to this edition range from internationally renowned academics to some of the most famous wine writers and wine specialists in the world. Over 60 per cent of all entries have been revised; and useful lists and statistics are appended, including a unique list of the world's controlled appellations and their permitted grape varieties, as well as vineyard area, wine production and consumption by country.
