Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0880016124, Hardcover)So you know all about spaghetti and lasagne, and want to delve further? Look no further than the Dictionary of Italian Cuisine to guide you through the thorny brambles of Italian cooking terminology. Thanks to late unification and fierce regionalism, many dishes have very different names in different parts of the country, and (worse!) many names refer to wildly different foods. To help us avoid confusing broccolo with broccoli, translator/food writer Maureen B. Fant and travel writer Howard M. Isaacs have teamed up to provide a comprehensive list of over 6,000 terms used throughout Italy, from a a'lunga to zuppiera. The pronunciation and usage guide, English-Italian index, and table of conversions will be sure to help the traveler, the exploring chef, and the Italophile in their quest for la dolce vita. --Rob Lightner
