The essential guide to culinary creativity, based on the wisdom of Americas most imaginative chefs.
Not only does The Flavor Bible list matching flavor combinations, but it also tells you which flavor combinations to avoid. This is something that homecooyks don't often think about, but it can really elevate your cooking.
It also offers tips and ideas from great chefs around the United States. If you really want to learn to cook well you need to understand what gives a dish balance in taste, how the weather and the season affects the dishes you would want to make, which ingredients work well together, and which don't.
I think it is this knowledge that can really set one free to be creative in the kitchen, to improvise, whether you are starting with a recipe or not. The more you understand which flavors work well together, which offer a natural balance, the more masterful your results will be.
Dozens of cuisines are also included, and insets give new cooking techniques, suggest dishes, and relate the experiences of individual chefs. If you are interested in improvising beyond a basic recipe, and want the best possible results, you will find this book a godsend. It's as if someone picked the brains of the best culinary talent just for you.
