The Flavor Bible
Read It / Karen A. Page & Andrew Dornenburg
This is a new genre of cookbook: an indispensible guide to flavor affinities meant to inspire creation of new recipes based on imaginitive and harmonious flavor combinations. The Flavor Bible will help you learn to harmonize the four basic tastes — salty, sour, bitter and sweet; work intuitively with ingredients by discovering which flavors have the strongest affinities for one another; and techniques for brightening, deepening and intensifying flavors. Seasoned with anecdotes, tips and dishes from the country's most respected and celebrated chefs.
Hardcover: 380 pages.
