Whether your tastes run to foie gras or french fries, this tasty compilation of the wise, the weird, and the faintly absurd will soon have you asking for more. An essential ingredient in any kitchen, The Cook’s Companion is stuffed with food facts, fiction, science, history, and trivia. With a measure of browsing, you will learn who invented the tin can, what an arachibutyrophobiac might be afraid of, why cannibals consider the French to be more delicious than Spaniards, what to do when your soufflé won’t rise, and why rhubarb can be dangerous. It is a well-stocked refrigerator for the mind, ready for leisurely feasting or a quick midnight snack.

Love this book. I enjoyed so much the garden one that I ordered the cook's companion. So full of interesting information.
This is a delightful pot porri of all things edible. It is the sort of book you can keep dipping into learing new facts on food and its history. There are quotes, cartoons and recipes. If you are compiling quizzes you will find lots here to test the best of minds and memories. Be warned. It will provoke the appetite.
this book kept me hooked for hours at a time. It has to be the most interesting book i have ever read. What makes it great is it keeps your attention and your are also learning useful knowledge.
