Reviews for The Flavor Bible
You need this in your kitchen
I love this book! It's what I've been needing for so long - the perfect cook's companion reference; what goes well with any ingredient, technique and even season of the year. Not as comprehensive as Spices Notes and Recipes but covers far more ingredients; herbs, meats, vegetables and much more. Now I can literally grab any ingredient out of the pantry and figure out what to cook for dinner. by Nathanael Boehm
A wonderful compendium of helpful knowledge
I must say from the beginning that this is the single, most helpful book that a passionate cook can own. It doesn't matter if you are a chef or just a home cooking mother, this is book makes the difference between ordinary food and savory meals!
The Flavor Bible offers quick and easy access to most of the ingredients that are used in a kitchen and all the wonderful ways in which they can be combined. It helps you make wonders out of an piece of ingredient, combining and pairing the most wonderful tastes and aromas. Items are displayed in alphabetical order just like a neat and orderly dictionary and there are also occasional dishes suggestions. All you have to do is open the book and inspiration is right there!
This is not a book that you read once and forget about it on the shelves. This Flavor Bible is that book that always gets food stains from continuous and daily use, that book that you wish you could carry in your head at all times.
The effort and care that the authors put into this book is truly amazing. by Diana Badea
