Product description

Review

"To savor The Flavor Thesaurus fully it helps to think of its author, Niki Segnit, as a culinary marriage broker. An imaginative but practical matchmaker, she has a gift for pairing sometimes lackluster ingredients in a way that brings out the best in them and makes them more appealing as a couple than they ever were as loners... She shares an eloquent vocabulary with us in this delicious book." --Wall Street Journal

"The cure for dinner ennui...a cheekily erudite, endlessly fascinating master list of flavor pairings both familiar and surprising...the entries get you dreaming of both exotic feasts and after-work comfort foods." --Whole Living

"Erudite and inspiring, practical and fun, it will make you salivate, laugh, take issue and feel vindicated. Your synapses will fire in a whole new way as you trail your hand through your garden herbs ... A deceptively simple little masterpiece." --Sunday Times (UK)

"An exquisite guide to combining flavors." --Observer (UK)

"An original and inspiring resource." --Heston Blumenthal

"Intriguing, surprising and remarkably useful." --Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

"The Flavor Thesaurus: A Compendium of Pairings, Recipes, And Ideas for the Creative Cook by Niki Segnit, will rival The Flavor Bible for pairing info." --Michael Ruhlman

"For new cooks and old hands in the kitchen, this book is a must-have and a must-read. Not only are the flavor combinations and recipes offered useful, but Niki Segnit's descriptions of each and every one are delightful to read. It's a combination between a bedtime read and a kitchen companion. " --GOOP

"Any aspiring culinary student will find this an invaluable reference work, and many home cooks may find equal inspiration in Segnit's creative ruminations." --Booklist

"Fascinating...a smart new reference for what goes with what, along with pithy explanations for why." --Denver Post

"[Segnit's] intuitive approach produces a cozy collection of description, anecdotes, and recipes within the flavor combination entries...Segnit's intimate style makes the book enjoyable as well as useful. This handy little guide will be a wonderful addition for cooks trying to expand their repertoire." --Library Journal

"One of the most fascinating food books I've come across in a long time." --Cincinnati Enquirer
