Culinary Encyclopedia: A dictionary of technical terms, names of foods and cookery auxiliaries, condiments and beverages.
THE object of this little book is intended to show the reader at a glance the meaning of certain words and expressions used in cookery and gastronomy.
It gives in a concise form such information which would otherwise cost much time and labour to obtain. It is a dictionary of culinary technical terms, the names of most food stuff, food and cookery auxiliaries, condiments and beverages.
The names of many new delicacies and foods will be found duly registered, whilst all the foreign terms used in menus and recipes are translated or explained. In short, every subject referring to the table or cuisine has been judiciously treated, and the so-called technicalities have been rendered intelligible.
