John Mariani’s The Encyclopedia of American Food & Drink, a valuable and entertaining resource!

Not only the publisher of the weekly (Free) newsletter, The Virtual Gourmet, John Mariani is the author of more than a dozen books. One of his most important (now in its 5th printing) is the impressive Encyclopedia Of American Food & Drink. Art and John of Celebrating Act 2 help point out the wide variety of features: Not only a comprehensive dictionary of words and terms; but lists of slang terms; biographies of famous foodies; reference bibliographies; recipes for dishes and cocktails and much much more. The story behind creating this mammoth tome is as interesting as the book itself.
