We all know that the sandwich and eggs Benedict are named after people and that Dover sole and Irish stew are named after places. But how about the Granny Smith apple or the Bing cherry, the Bermuda onion or Anaheim chile?

In Chicken à la King & the Buffalo Wing, you’ll find bite-sized entertaining histories of how certain foods and beverages came to be named after people or places—complemented by more than forty-five scrumptious pull-out recipes. This fun and informative reference “menu” is perfect for foodies and language lovers alike. Bon appetit!
