Chicken A La King and The Buffalo Wing: Food Names And The People And Places That Inspired Them

y Steven Gilbar

Note from Chef James:
If you like the Trivia section on Foodreference.com, you will like this book.  This little book has fascinating short entries about 300 food names and their origins.

Description
Features more than 300 food names and their origins and includes 50 recipes from world culinary history.

We all know that "sandwich" and "eggs benedict" are named after people and that "Dover sole" and "Irish stew" are named after places. But how about the "Granny Smith" apple or the "Bing cherry", the "Bermuda onion" or "Anaheim chile?" For readers who have always been curious about the origin of the names of certain foods, dishes and beverages, this fun and informative reference is set forth like a menu--first dinner, then lunch and breakfast, where readers are free to gorge themselves on the literary dainties inside. Bon appetit!
