  • Updated information for hundreds of existing entries

  • An extensive breakdown of food labels and nutritional facts
  • Department of Agriculture recommendations for a 2,000 calorie per day food plan
    Among the myriad foods and culinary subjects defined and explained are cooking tools and techniques, meat cuts, breads, pastas, and literally everything else related to good food and enjoyable dining. Handy appendices cover many topics including suggestions for substituting recipe ingredients, a microwave oven conversion chart, recommended safe cooking temperatures for meats and fish, and much more.
