I bought this on a whim whilst shopping for another cookery book. It's a root and branch explanation of the history of ingrediants, origins of recipes and covers absolutely any dish you can think of, with the exception of far eastern food. If you love food you'll find this fascinating. If you want a reciepe then this book has it. It does have a strong French bias but I like that.
It's an encyclopedia and a wonderful reference book.

I run a small B&B in France and prepare evening meals almost every night for our guests - this book has proven to be invaluable to me if only because it translates all those cooking terms that you have heard of and never known what they mean! There are plenty of recipes for things that you could for search for in cook books or on the internet and have trouble finding. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has to cook - even if it is just for the family at home, as it could widen your repertoire without you even realising it! Bon appetit!

No cook( whatever their cooking skill level)/ discerning diner should be without a copy of this book. It is a great encyclopedia to give the reader a description of any food / dishes and some recipies also.

If you want to know the origins of the food you eat and many other technical aspects of cooking then you will not be disappointed with this. However if you are looking for easy to follow recipes with lots of glossy photographs then you will. This is the sort of book you will use for reference purposes although I enjoy just flicking through it.

This book isn't for the faint hearted, it's exactly what it says it is - an Encyclopaedia. It crammed full of information and recipes, it's very interesting to skim through, but it's not one to read from beginning to end. If you ever wondered about the roots of a particular dish, then this book will probably have the answer.

I have always wanted to own this book, but its price was over my limit. My only concern is finding the time to really do it justice by reading it and putting it in good use

Although described as 'concise', this is a substantial and comprehensive piece of work. An essential addition to your kitchen bookshelf.
