Howard Isaacs and I needed a reliable, wide-ranging dictionary of Italian food terminology and couldn't find one. So we wrote this. It contains brief definitions of 5000+ terms used in Italian recipes and on menus, including common verbs and adjectives (so you don't need two dictionaries to get through one short recipe). It also has kitchen equipment and place names.
Do you know the difference between a mestolo and a mestolone? One's a ladle, the other a wild duck.
No pictures, no recipes. Just lots and lots of words.
