The Flavor Bible Ignites Culinary Passion, Creativity
by Joy Of Desserts
Don't let the cover of this book fool you. It is not just about a few spices and flavorings. This meticulously crafted and photographed encyclopedic tome is for the serious cook, the culinary scholar, the passionate gourmet, the food historian.
It is for those looking to take their cooking and eating to a level beyond ordinary.
This luxurious, hardcover book deserves an honored place on the consummate food lover's bookshelf, far away from kitchen grease. Keep it at the ready to pore over its delectable contents.
There are no recipes in this book, but the quotes delving into the philosophies of America's most renowned chefs; the extensive, alphabetized ingredient reviews covering nuances from shades of color to mouthfeel; and the artistic photography will equip the experienced to create their own recipes for culinary masterpieces.
