Acclaim for
THE DEVIL'S FOOD DICTIONARY:
A PIONEERING CULINARY REFERENCE WORK
CONSISTING ENTIRELY OF LIES


"Hilariously skewers food writers, cuisines and sacred culinary
traditions."

---Jane Black, The Washington Post

"Some of the funniest, most wickedly witty writing--food related or
otherwise--on the shelves today."
---Laurel Gladden, SantaFeNewMexican.com

"Foy has lowered the bar for food writers everywhere (for which we
should all be grateful)."

---Gary Allen, LeitesCulinaria.com

"One of my favorite food-related books released this year. A wry take
on food that is equal parts pure nonsense, good clean fun, and sharp
send-up of foodie pretension."

---Adam Kuban, SeriousEats.com

"Among the funniest satires I have ever read, period."
---Ken Albala, Gastronomica

"Veramente una delle pochissime occasioni in cui la gastronomia
risulta anche divertente, a volte fino alle lacrime. Uno dei migliori
libri che me sia capitato sotto mano quest'anno."

---Sigrid Verbert-Bloise, CavolettoDiBruxelles.com

The market for food books appears, at last, to have begun devouring itself.
Nearly every topic worth writing about has been written about, and the well
of dependable, interesting
information on food, once thought inexhaustible, is
beginning to run dry.

In circumstances such as these, author Barry Foy believes that an honorable
writer has
nowhere to go but sideways, into the realm of lies, misleading claims,
 and
baseless speculation. With nearly 1,100 entries on subjects ranging from
ingredients to utensils to history to techniques,
plus 246 footnotes, an extensive
fraudulent bibliography, and 26 peculiar illustrations,
The Devil's Food Dictionary
promises much-needed relief to the foodish reader who is sagging under the
burden of
informativeness and credibility.
