The agrument ender
Though, a new version is out, this one is hands down a great buy. It is the end all for reference books. This encyclopedia is used to end all disputes and to teach culinary students across the world. I keep one very close to me where ever I go. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about food
