There is a flavors of the world section that describes what that region's influences, flavorings, ingredients and meals are. Then you move on to the vegetable and fruit flavorings section which includes mushrooms, extracts and flavorings, sugars and so on.
The section on edible leaves and flowers is fun. It shows some flowers you can eat and how to use them. I have made some floral waters from this book; very good. I am confident now using different nut and seed oils, as well as making my own flavored vinegars. The last section is on coffee, tea and spiced drinks. Very informative.
If you love to cook, or just find out more about the spices in your own cupboard, I think you will really enjoy this book.
This is one of those infrequent books that educate you while you're not even realizing you are being educated. It's definitely a fun read.
As another commenter mentioned... I've gifted this book to a few friends, and now they are gifting the book to their friends.
If only it were still in print.......
