Abstract:An integrative vision of the gastronomy phenomenon cannot exclude the linguist. We will show in this paper which is the etymologic and semantic arsenal of culinary terminology. In this respect, we chose some examples from Romanian literature, which demonstrate that writers have a good knowledge of the local cuisine, can skillfully cook and know how to ”philosophize” on the food. The art of cooking, or the ability to appreciate the quality and taste of foods, becomes thus a true story. It involves two major poles, the one who prepares the food (the cook) and the one who enjoys the food (the diner). It's a similar relationship to that between writer and reader, a highly ”developed” and complicated one, depending on many rules and teachings.
