Delicious Data

A compendium of cooking, eating, and drinking infographics
Amid our ever-growing consumption of data visualization, nothing makes for tastier morsels than the fine art of food and dining. Ushering the cookbook into the future, this volume gathers together the best infographics of all things eating, drinking, and cuisine, from measurement conversion charts and recipes for cookies and cocktails to stress-free party planning.

A must-have for every 21st-century foodie, this is gastro-guidance at its most visually appealing as much as expert. Want to master sashimi? Know the secret to perfectly grilled steak? Wow guests with your own dry martini? Food & Drink Infographics has all the answers and more, using the best culinary graphics to answer kitchen conundrums in lively, simple, and memorable form.

You’ll find infographics on all the food groups, from grains and pulses to fruit and vegetables, to fish, meat, and poultry. Recipe ideas include soups, sandwiches, snacks, sweet treats, and just-right dressings. Other sections cover flavor pairings, baking, cooking tools and techniques, and alcohols, coffee, and tea.

The book opens with a foreword by cooking author Michael Ruhlman, followed by a historic survey of food imagery examining how and where pictures have been used to enjoy, prepare, and serve food and drink, from Egyptian tomb paintings showing flatbread being made to 19th-century classics such as Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management. Slick, smart, and packed full of perfect nuggets of advice, Food & Drink Infographics rounds up a delightful visual exploration of food and dining as much as an indispensable collection of everyday tips, techniques, and temptations.

Die besten Infografiken!

Sebastian, November 02, 2021
Dieses Buch gehört zu meinen absoluten Favoriten!
Die Infografiken sind abwechslungsreich, kunstvoll und höchst interessant.
Wer gerne Essen zubereitet, sich bewusst ernährt oder sich einfach nur für gute Illustrationen und Infografiken interessiert darf dieses Buch nicht übergehen!
Hier gibt es geballtes Wissen zu jedem Aspekt unserer Nahrung, ansehnlich und kunstvoll, aber auch extrem informativ und kompakt aufbereitet!
Absolute Empfehlung! Aber Achtung, das Buch ist gigantisch!
