The Culinarian

The Culinarian – A Kitchen Desk Reference
By Barbara Ann Kipfer


Think of this amazing reference guide as a dictionary for foodies. This culinary dictionary gives plain English definitions for thousands of food terms from Absinthe to Zucchini, including tips on selection, storing and using every ingredient, cooking method and piece of kitchen equipment imaginable.

Best of the Book

This book is so comprehensive! They really have a definition for everything. I love the writing – the language is clear and to the point. Every time I open it I learn something new!

What Could be Better

There really isn’t any room for improvement here. It is a wonderfully useful book and there are great bits of information about all kinds of food and food related products.

Target Audience

This book is a great companion piece to any cookbook and for any cook. It is full of interesting tips and tidbits of information and is a wonderful reference guide for anyone with an interest in food. Personally, I always have it close at hand while watching some of these new cooking shows with the mystery box of ingredients. Makes me feel smart to know what the ingredients can be used for before the host explains it!
