Drawing on dozens of leading chefs' combined experience in top restaurants across the country, Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg present the definitive guide to creating "deliciousness" in any dish. Thousands of ingredient entries, organized alphabetically and cross-referenced, provide a treasure trove of spectacular flavor combinations. Readers will learn to work more intuitively and effectively with ingredients; experiment with temperature and texture; excite the nose and palate with herbs, spices, and other seasonings; and balance the sensual, emotional, and spiritual elements of an extraordinary meal.Seasoned with tips, anecdotes, and signature dishes from America's most imaginative chefs, THE FLAVOR BIBLE is an essentialreference for every kitchen.

WRITE A REVIEW

Not a cookbook, but a springboard for ideas

4

This is not a cookbook. There are no recipes to follow, or techniques to utilize. What it has however, is a series of flavor combinations that work well together, and that can be used to create a masterful dish. If you know your way around a kitchen, and can cook, but are looking for a way of using up some leftovers, then I would highly recommend this book.
