The Cook’s Thesaurus

The Cook’s Thesaurus

This is a great Web site for anyone who loves to cook! You never know when you’re going to run out of something and need a food substitute for your recipe. With this site’s search engine, you can find a food sub fast and easy. Let’s check it out!

Not only does it have great food substitutions, but it also has information, pronunciations, pictures and more!

On the main page, you’ll notice that there is a featured section where you’ll find the Ingredient of the Month. This month’s is red cabbage. The section tells you what to look for in red cabbage, what it pairs well with and it offers you some advice on how to cook it.

Further down the main page, you’ll find a listing of categories. You’ll find everything from fruits to vegetables, flavorings, baking supplies, fats and oils and even equipment.

Each category breaks down into a list of items that fit the category you can explore further.

This site offers you a great way to find food substitutes for those kitchen mishaps when you thought you had everything you needed. It also goes further to educate you about the ingredients and equipment you cook with. Happy cooking!

The Cook’s Thesaurus

Saturday, May 14th, 2005 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

Well, if you love to cook, and I do, then you’re going to love this site! It’s a Cook’s Thesaurus! What exactly does that mean? A thesaurus helps you find another word for something. Example:

Hot — the thesaurus shows that you can also use burning, sweltering, spicy, and it also gave me a list of other words for those words.

Here at the Cook’s Thesaurus you can find ingredients that you can use instead of what’s called for.

Here’s an example entry:

Your recipe calls for celery seed, but you don’t have any. Type “celery seed” in the search engine or go to the flavorings, then the spice section (it’s in European Spices) and you will find the entry for celery seed.

Celery seed Notes: Celery seed is used to impart a celery flavor to stews, pickles, and other dishes. Use it sparingly—a little goes a long way. Ground celery seed is sometimes called celery powder. Substitutes: celery (One teaspoon = 2 tablespoons minced celery tops) OR dill seed OR celery salt (reduce the salt elsewhere in the recipe.)

You can find entries for just about anything: vegetables, fruits, dairy, liquids, grains, baked goods, and so on and so forth.

Just choose the ingredient you need to sub out and you’ll find answer that may not require you to make a trip to the grocery store!
