BBC Food Glossary

Language: English

No. of terms: approximately 500

Description: BBC Food’s glossary is “an A to Z guide to cookery terms. Whether it’s herbs and spices, names of dishes or cooking techniques, you’ll find them here, along with suggested recipes and links to more information.”
Very helpful glossary, indeed!

Example Term: Carpaccio

A classic Italian dish, served as a starter, of very thin shavings of raw beef fillet, served cold with olive oil and lemon juice or with a mayonnaise or mustard sauce.

The dish is often topped with capers and sometimes onions. Although true carpaccio is made with beef, ‘carpaccios’ of other thinly sliced raw meats, fish or even fruits are becoming more frequently sighted on restaurant menus.
