The Dictionary of Food
Comprehensively compiled by Charles Herman Senn more than 100 years ago it has 225 pages with more than 2500 entries. For this unique eBook edition we have added audio clips demonstrating exactly the correct pronunciation of culinary terms originating from France and other countries – at the touch of a button.
Senn was one of the founders of the Universal Cookery and Food Association and edited the association’s year-book, The Cookery Annual, from its first publication in 1894.
Cooking is at the heart of every culture but it is all too easy to forget the wonderful cookery heritage that languishes on unseen museum shelves.
At Cookery Classics it is our mission to bring long neglected cookery books back to life for the tablet age so the wealth of cookery expertise, guidance and advice that they contain is available to a new generation of cooks.
Our ebooks have been designed to the highest possible standards to enable you to search, pinch and zoom, print recipes, and link direct to the web in a pleasurable exploration of this rich resource of cookery expertise.
Retaining all the quality of an expensive printed book but interactive features, some enhanced with additional audio and video, they are an essential addition to the virtual bookshelf of any serious cook.
In order to retain the authenticity of Cookery Classics eBooks the original text has been retained so some spellings may be different to current usage.
