The Deluxe Food Lover's Companion - Ron Herbst, Sharon Tyler Herbst

First published in 1990, the popular kitchen reference, The Deluxe Food Lover’s Companion (Barron’s $29.99), by Sharon and Ron Herbst, has been updated to reflect the global ingredients that have entered our cuisine in the last decades.  I could easily find the thick and sweet Indonesian soy sauce I was looking for (kecap) as well as the popular Southeast Asian seafood sauce (sri racha) in the glossary of sauces and stocks.  With apple pies on deck for the holidays, I at last have a three-page summary of the differences between all those apples at Whole Foods; ditto, the olive oils and the cheeses.  There’s a potful of information here for all aspiring kitchen Quiz Kids.
