Mouth-watering illustrations accompany 181 „yummy words” in this lexicon of food-related vocabulary, meticulously researched and appetizingly arranged by popular Polish linguist, Professor Jerzy Bralczyk. Most entries refer to delicious-sounding dishes, define and describe in detail the various aspects of eating, while some are only figuratively linked to the gourmet. The book is far from being a sensu stricto culinary guide: the author seems to gorge himself not so much on food, as on food words - their sound, beauty, meaning and function. Each entry starts with an etymological summary; from there he leads us down a humour-frosted food-path until we arrive at surprising and uniquely palatable food associations, proverbs, idiomatic expressions and zesty folklore sayings. From “ananas” (pineapple)  to  “żurek” (sour rye borscht), the first and last words  alphabetically in this culinary journey, the trail of the writer’s tale winds through the empire of food vocabulary with flair and linguistic relish. Though indisputably a treat for hardened gourmands, this book is guaranteed to charm every Reader - and make them ravenously hungry in the process, too.
