About this title:

Synopsis: Written in French. Here is a synopsis in English of the book: Here is a book of gastronomic culture by which the pleasure of knowledge anticipates and prolongs the pleasure of tasting. Since the invention of fire and the first Grill, wine or distillation, the history of gastronomy is indeed in the history of men. Cookbooks are the witnesses of a civilization, a region or a country, and ingredients, as well as the modes of preparation, reflect as many socio-economic States. And, as men, the recipes migrate from one country to the other, sometimes adapting, sometimes quietly colonizing the local cuisine: that we think the use of spices from the East by the Silk Road! The reader will find here the meaning of the words of the culinary art, some of which can confuse any apprentice Cook. Entries by products indicate the best primers and accommodations, according to regions or countries. The consequences of human migrations and globalization are also studied, whether it is products or dishes, from antiquity to the present day. The wines are special entries, describing their features and offering the best deal with the mets. Finally, biographical concern personalities that have marked the cuisine as cooks, authors of books or savvy gastronomes. This dictionary therefore aims to provide any Gastronome knowledge enabling him to feed and drinking with pleasure because, according to Brillat-Savarin, "the spirit man knows to eat".
