Cupboard Love

Contributed by: Jennifer Wickes

With more than one thousand culinary "word-histories", Mark Morton takes us on a journey of from where that word came. He discusses herbs and spices, everyday food and exotic food, from medieval times and abroad!

Cupboard Love: A Dictionary of Culinary Curiosities, Second Edition
Mark Morton is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Winnipeg in Canada. This is his second book.

Cupboard of Love has been updated from its earlier 1996 version. It was nominated for a Julia Child Award in 1997. Here, you can be taken on a journey to find where the originations of certain food and food terminologies have come from. This book is like a mini-historical tour across the globe telling us that croissants originally came from Turkey (not France) and that butteries were designed to hold wine not dairy.

This is not a cookbook. There are no recipes inside. Nor are there photographs either. This book is literally a dictionary.

If you are curious where your food has come from, or perhaps where the term "hodgepodge" has come from, then check out this book! It is really quite interesting!
