Product Description From Great cooking goes beyond following a recipe–it’s knowing how to season ingredients to coax the greatest possible flavor from them. Drawing on dozens of leading chefs’ combined experience in top restaurants across the country, Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg present the definitive guide to creating “deliciousness” in any dish. Thousands of ingredient entries, organized alphabetically and cross-referenced, provide a treasure trove of spectacular flavor combinations. Readers will learn to work more intuitively and effectively with ingredients; experiment with temperature and texture; excite the nose and palate with herbs, spices, and other seasonings; and balance the sensual, emotional, and spiritual elements of an extraordinary meal.  Seasoned with tips, anecdotes, and signature dishes from America’s most imaginative chefs, THE FLAVOR BIBLE is an essential reference for every kitchen.

The Flavor Bible can do the impossible and make even the food I cook taste good.  Hidden inside these unassuming pages is everything you need to make a magnificent meal.  The book starts by exploring the four basic tastes (salty, sour, bitter and sweet).  From there using the four basic tastes it goes on to explain which flavors work together the best to give you the most mouth watering meals over and over again.  I highly recommend this book for anyone that ever steps foot in a kitchen.
