Ever wondered why one flavour works with another? Or lacked inspiration for what to do with a bundle of beetroot?The Flavour Thesaurusis the first book to examine what goes with what, pair by pair.
The book is divided into flavour themes including Meaty, Cheesy, Woodland and Floral Fruity. Within these sections it follows the form of Roget's Thesaurus, listing 99 popular ingredients alphabetically, and for each one suggesting flavour matchings that range from the classic to the bizarre.
You can expect to find traditional pairings such as pork & apple, lamb & apricot, and cucumber & dill; contemporary favourites like chocolate & chilli, and goat's cheese & beetroot; and interesting but unlikely-sounding couples including black pudding & chocolate, lemon & beef, blueberry & mushroom, and watermelon & oyster.
There are nearly a thousand entries in all, with 200 recipes and suggestions embedded in the text. Beautifully packaged,The Flavour Thesaurusis not only a highly useful, and covetable, reference book for cooking - it might keep you up at night reading.
