Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the international bestseller Schott's Original Miscellany, the new collection of vital irrelevance and uncommon knowledge from the worlds of food and drink.

The eponymous foods, famous last meals, and perfect martini proportions revealed in the bestselling Schott's Original Miscellany were only the tip of the iceberg: Schott's Food and Drink Miscellany is a snapper-up of unconsidered trifles from the culinary world. From food history to cooking terms, cocktail recipes to dining etiquette, grace before meals to after-dinner toasts-this olla podrida offers everything for the wine drinker, gastronome, and glutton. Ben Schott's brilliant juxtaposition of delectable tidbits makes this new miscellany so hard to put down, it may even make you late for dinner.

Synopsis:

This is a snapper-up of unconsidered trifles - from food history to cooking terms; cocktail recipes to dining etiquette; grace before meals to after-dinner toasts. It also informs the reader of the King who served foie gras to his dog, and the feast where guests ate in fear of their lives.

Synopsis:

The author of last year's Christmas bestseller, "Schott's Original Miscellany", returns with this complete reference for all things culinary. Expect the familiar mix of trivial, bizarre and pointless facts, and, as a result, the same widespread appeal to the Christmas stocking-filler market.
