    1. Published in 2007, this book is starting to feel dated, especially in reference to The Food Network, which has evolved considerably. I expected more from this book -- entries are short, cursory, and US-west-coast-centric. There is a whole world of European foodism not covered here. (What about all those Brit-snobs with their Agas, and food tourism in Tuscany and Provence, among other things?) Another disappointment: much like the online Urban Dictionary, the examples of usage for many entries ar [...]


    2. David Kamp wrote "The United States of Arugula" (2006) and proved his chops as both food writer and humourous essayist. The premise of his "Food Snob's Dictionary" is that it prepares one to (a) become a food snob by using its contents correctly and often, or (b) look down on food snobs for their pretentious use of the words contained in the book. In addition to words for foods and processes, the lexicon includes the names and short biographies of many of the biggies -- both classical and modern [...]


    3. This is a silly little book poking fun at foodies and people who know or are concerned with the purity and authenticity of everything that touches their delicate palate. I certainly fall into that category at times, especially pertaining to a certain ethnic cuisine I am intimately acquainted with. I do disagree with certain entries, especially one pertaining to the Autogrill in Italy. It is the best road food you will ever taste no matter what these two say. And that goes for the Autogrills in t [...]


    4. As a self-called Foodie, I really enjoyed this book. It was humbling, however, to realize that I'm not as much of a foodie as I thought I was. The definitions were informative but more importantly, funny. I had a few laugh aloud moments reading this "book."



    5. This was an okay book. it didn't tell me too much I didn't already know. I wish there were other lexicon that were more in depth in their descriptions and definitions.







    6. Two and a half really. It was fine, but not really what I was looking for in a food snob dictionary. I expected there to be more food history and less entries about the big names in the food world.



    7. This was just fun. Thoroughly enjoyed testing my knowledge and proud to say I did pretty well - but learned a bunch of new things. Good for any true foodie.
