    Eric Glatre, alongside the teaching team at FERRANDI Paris, worked to research, collect and define those terms which help cement the position of French, in all its richness and precision, as the universal language of gastronomy. 

    “What is so special about Bergeron  apricots? What are the properties and uses of samphire? Why are wines said to “sparkle”? What does it mean to “dredge” meat, or “churn” ice cream? These are just a few of the questions covered in the FERRANDI Paris Chef’s Dictionary,” proclaims Eric Glatre, responsible for collecting the dictionary’s 8000 definitions.

    “This is the first ever dictionary by FERRANDI Paris. As FERRANDI approaches its centenary, it is important that we compile the terms which form France’s culinary and gastronomical heritage – the  unique savoir-faire and high expectations which have made French gastronomy known the world over,” adds Bruno de Monte, director general of FERRANDI Paris.
