This book is for foodies and non-foodies alike. If you like funny books, the ridiculous terms and phrases in this book about cooking kept me and my family entertained for hours.

With the 2008 election in its final weeks and the economy in a shambles, this book is the best medicine. Nothing like a good (really, really good) laugh to take the edge off. Foy is brilliant. Every entry made me laugh out loud...and I'm not much of a laugh-out-louder.

This was/is a great present for anybody that enjoys food or cooking. It is also a fun gift to get for yourself if you're into that.

The definitions are strange, funny, and yet just plausible enough that you can use them to fool somebody who knows little about cooking.

Remember, use it for good not evil!

Who is this guy and how did he get so funny? Nearly every page has had me doubled over in laughter. A brilliant satire of food reference works, food history, food writing in general.
It was so funny I had to keep putting it down to catch my breath from laughing!
