    DescriptionEver wondered why one flavour works with another? Or lacked inspiration for what to do with a bundle of beetroot? The Flavour Thesaurus is the first book to examine what goes with what, pair by pair. The book is divided into flavour themes including Meaty, Cheesy, Woodland and Floral Fruity. Within these sections it follows the form of Roget's Thesaurus, listing 99 popular ingredients alphabetically, and for each one suggesting flavour matchings that range from the classic to the bizarre. You can expect to find traditional pairings such as pork & apple, lamb & apricot, and cucumber & dill; contemporary favourites like chocolate & chilli, and goat's cheese & beetroot; and interesting but unlikely-sounding couples including black pudding & chocolate, lemon & beef, blueberry & mushroom, and watermelon & oyster. There are nearly a thousand entries in all, with 200 recipes and suggestions embedded in the text. Beautifully packaged, The Flavour Thesaurus is not only a highly useful, and covetable, reference book for cooking - it might keep you up at night reading.

    Fantastic book!4

    Siobahn It arrived yesterday and I've already used it twice.
    I originally bought it as a gift for my mum, who is a very good intuitive cook.
    I opened it to have a look through, and decided that I'd have to order another one for her, I'm keeping this one!
    Lovely and simple to look up different herbs, spices, vegetables, and meats and their pairings. Some of the stories that accompany the flavour pairings sound a little pretentious, but the general recipes suggestions sound beautiful. by Siobahn

  • Good gift for a foodie friend4

    Melissa I bought this for a foodie friend of mine who already owns stacks and stacks of cookbooks. This is a little different in that it isn't a cookbook, simply taste combinations you may never have thought of before and food trivia to go with the entries. My foodie friend loved it. Plus the book itself is physically quite nice looking. It would be for people who seriously love cooking and food and reading about food as well. by Melissa
