Book Description

France remains the world’s most popular tourist destination, and food certainly ranks very high among the pleasures to be enjoyed there. Yet many restaurants, particularly those most worth visiting, the more authentic establishments catering to native tastes, present a key challenge to the non-French speaker: the menu is unlikely to be translated, or where it is, the English version may be a source of bemusement as much as one of culinary enticement.

The long, proud history of French cuisine, in all its regional variety and inventiveness, its firm traditions and continual innovations, means that a little help will be invaluable to most non-Francophone diners.

This bilingual French and English dictionary provides approximately 1000 of the most common food and drink terms in both directions, making it the perfect companion for understanding French menus, recipes, and other food-related texts. This is, therefore, an ideal reference work for tourists in particular, but also for language students, catering professionals and anyone with an interest in the complex, often confusing, yet incredibly rewarding world of French cuisine.

This revised and updated second edition includes some 200 new entries, giving wider representation to a number of specific regional dishes and preparations.

Does what it says on the tin although best to have later versions of Kindle when scanning through is much easier

I found this book very helpful, it covers the subject better than any travel information book or teach yourself French. My wife is French and this book has enabled her to say "Look it up" when I ask for a culinary word in French.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Reference 12 Mar. 2014
I love eating out when I visit France but don't like to have roaming turned on on my phone. I never go to a restaurant without this dictionary loaded up on my phone any more, it's really helped me have a better grasp of what I'm ordering and I've found a few delicious dishes which I would not have had the confidence to order with this as reference.

If you're going on holidays to France I highly recommend you buy this in advance to aid your culinary adventures.
