A surprise read !,
This review is from: The Flavour Thesaurus (Hardcover)
I stumbled across Segnit's book while looking for a gift for a foodie friend, and loved it so much I bought my own. This is a wonderful book, a guide to flavour pairings grouped in categories such as "sulphurous" - onion & beetroot, broccoli & lemon - and "spicy" - basil & coconut, parsnip & walnut.
For the most part, the author offers ideas rather than recipes and - thus - this is not a book for the beginner cook but for those of us who like to experiment but already have a level of skill in the kitchen.
Perhaps the best part, though, is not the pairings but the humour ! What a funny, intelligent person - and I've added her immediately to the list of people I'd like to invite to dinner !
A great gift, but also a great read - and a terrific addition to your cookbook collection.
