Product Description

Review

“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

“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 

"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"

Oh what a wonderful book. It's a complete guide to what goes with what. Ideal for the novice yet experimental home cook but also full of great ideas for a seasoned chef. This simple guide to pairings to create a menu that is both delicious and delightfully original. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who can cook without following a recipe or to a busy cook who needs to throw together a meal with just the contents of her fridge and cupboard. Overall a great read too with a comedic flair!

It is a great cook book for the person who isn't fond of following recipes or you are looking to finish off that one ingredient that you have in your fridge. It give you great ideas on how to use specific flavors to make dishes instead of just how to make dishes.

This is a reference book, not a novel, so keep it handy. Gifted one to my chef son in law, and he loves it!
