Product Description

Review

A good chef will often create from a chart of flavor principles that are attached to their roots. Beppi and Lucy’s inspiring work brilliantly displays this doctrine; while remaining accessible to the home cook. (Daniel Boulud, Chef/Owner, The Dinex Group) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
Long time Globe and Mail columnists Lucy Waverman and Beppi Crosariol have recently combined their respective loves of food and drink to produce "The Flavour Principle," a global gastronomic journey and one of the best cookbooks Canada currently offers.

The Flavour Principle contains over 30 creative menus, each organized around one of 11 core flavours such as earthy, sweet, herbal and umami. The notes preceding the recipes have a conversational, humourous tone while the recipes themselves produce flavour extravaganzas: caramel-pecan sea bass with cranberry wine sauce and shallot and brussels sprout compote form part of one holiday feast.

Crosariol thoughtfully pairs each dish with a wine and also offers advice on how to stock a bare-bones bar. Food and drink come together even more beautifully when enhanced by Ryan Szulc's mouth-watering photos. An excellent gift for any home cook who wants to tour the world through taste.

This is turning out to be one of the most used cookbooks we've ever got. We have been cooking numerous recipes and sharing with our friends who are doing the same. The results are excellent, a fine blend of relative ease to execute and unusual, terrific results. Each recipe has been a new intense flavour and the wine matching has been superb. So nice to be able to find the ingredients as well as a suitable wine match and that is with us living in a small town well away from major culinary markets. One recipe in particular we have made several times and we've only had the book for a short while. We bought a copy for friends and will seriously consider more as gift giving situations arise. Congratulations to Lucy and Beppi for a job well done. Our expectations were high as we've cooked many recipes of Lucy Waverman's before and followed up Beppi's suggestions as well.

I love this book! When I first get a cookbook, I look through it cover to cover, stopping to read here and there. Then I read the book. I am three quarters through reading the book and haven't been able to put it down. It's Lucy at her best. And it's Beppi at his usual- clever, honest, and biased against Ontario wines. He waxes on about the french, the italian, the spanish beverages, naming names and brands, and finally, grudgingly admits to Ontario's superiority in ice wines (not naming any one in particular). This is my only criticism. I enjoy imported wines from all over the world, but have found some gems here at home, too. Is Beppi a wine snob?

This cookbook is exactly what I was expecting from the authors. It is accessible cuisine, that is based around flavour profiles, providing readers with the knowledge to take what they've learned and build upon. It gives great advice about not only wine pairing, but cocktails, spirits and beers. The authors took an immensely complex volume of knowledge and presented it in a way that leaves the reader with a better understanding and a thirst for more.

Great book! I like how the authors pair foods with wines. The recipes I have tried are not too difficult and so far have turned out well. only complaint is that the book cannot stay open

I gave this book to all five of my children, who are married with families. All are avid cooks.
For Mother's Day Eileen did the menu for Native Indians. Excellent.
