How sweet it is when lexicographer Christine Ammer traces the history and explains the usage of more than 1,000 food-related expressions in everyday English. You'll whet your appetite on the meaty origin of give someone the cold shoulder...sink your teeth into Twinkie economics (tastes great, but no nutritional value)...and savor why honeymoon has meant the love-smitten early days of a marriage as far back as the sixteenth century. Thirteen comprehensive chapters cover the entire alphabet of food phrases from soup to nuts, as well as cooking and dining terms. You'll cut your teeth on mouthwatering goodies as the relationship between sex and cheesecake, the amusing history of the hot dog and the naughty side of jelly roll.
