About the Author

Artur Cisar-Erlach is a woodland ecologist, food communications expert, and cabinetmaker whose work spans the fields of food and ecotourism. He received his graduate degree in Food Culture and Communication at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenzo, Italy, and was an editor of the Slow Food International Travel handbook. He divides his time between Vienna, Austria, and Nova Scotia, Canada. The Flavor of Wood is his first book. --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.


“Spellbinding . . . [full of ] brilliantly told stories which, one after another, reveal glimpses into an ingredient so primal and so ubiquitous that it’s full majesty has eluded us all?until now. Through Cisar-Erlach’s eyes we see the stoic tree as if for the first time. We discover luscious cambium and tannic heartwood, Sumerian truffle hunters and Modenese vinegar makers, German pickles and Vietnamese perfumes. Whether you love food, crave adventure, or just enjoy a wild ride, this book is the ticket. I am floored by this book.” (Mark Bitterman James Beard Award–winning author of Salted)

“Part travelogue and part culinary adventure, 
The Flavor of Wood is a quirky, entertaining ramble through the many ways wood lends its flavor to food. I learned a lot.” (Bob Holmes author of Flavor: The Science of Our Most Neglected Sense) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
