The Flavour Thesaurus is just excellent, it's a must have kitchen stable. I have the hardcover version as my husband bought it for me overseas and use it religiously. There's a reason it was nominated alongside Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Nigel Slater et al for the prestigious Galaxy National Book Awards in the UK: it is classy, original, entertaining and extremely useful.
Whether you love to cook, but like me a little concerned about trying flavour variations of substitutes or just want a funny, entertaining read - this book suits to a Tee.
Open the refrigerator. A couple of leftover ingredients with no time to shop... in minutes we've got something delicious on the table, the wonderful thing is the book tells you when flavours don't go well together as well as when they do.
I've given it as a gift several times and the recipients love it. I bought the Kindle version today as it was a Kindle Daily deal so I could also have it stored on my iPad. Buy it - you won't regret it.
