LAROUSSE GASTRONOMIQUE: The First American Edition of The Encyclopedia of Food, Wine & Cookery Cookbook
This classic is definitely encyclopedic. As thick as a major metropolitan phonebook, nearly every possible food is listed with a brief description, history, simple preparation instructions, and the occasional recipe. Obviously, the contents have a French cuisine slant, but the majority of the alphabetical entries are global in origin. For example, persimmons and pumpkins have long entries, even though they are New World fruits. This book works best if you have an ingredient or technique in mind, and then research what to do with it. This book will not be the back bone of your cookbook collection, but it answers the questions that are too far-ranging for more focused texts. Well worth the money, and no experimenter should be without it.
