Great Great Great Book

I bought one as a gift for a friend in Florida who is a fantastic cook and she found a ton of useful information and helpful tips that she can now use to increase her culinary skills....If ya cook, ya need this book.....
Best Book ever
The price of this book is fantastic. If you are in the Culinary field this is a must have. It arrived fast and a great value.
I bought this book for...
I bought this book for my husband who is an "intuitive" cook, in that he rarely follows recipes - he creates by flavor. I thought he would find this book intriguing, and he did. However, he also found (and implemented) all kinds of new and unusual flavor combos that he had never thought of...this book really "thinks outside the box" but also has very practical uses. A book that I thought was interesting trivia, turned out to be an amazing tool for my husband. This book is not recipes (we have enough recipes at our house), rather it is for inspiration. Also I would think a novice cook could learn a great deal about cooking from this book.
Perfect for : Personal...
Perfect for : Personal Use, Gift for someone who loves to cook In a nutshell: This is an awesome book! It is full of such a wealth of information to aid in the kitchen. I can't tell you the number of times that I wanted to take plain chicken and use the herbs and spices that I had at my fingertips to create a mouth-watering meal. . . but no matter what I did, it didn't turn out as planned. With this book, I can do that. It doesn't tell me to put precise ingredients together to create the perfect dish, but rather tells me what I can put together, and what I can pair it with, leaving the creativity to me. Extended Review: Content: The authors take the time to share the different ways we experience flavor in the introduction. They also share some real strategies for balancing the flavors of the meal. The remainder of the rest of the book is comprised of a guide that cross-references different foods and flavors, providing the following for each item: matching flavors (key flavors, those recommended by experts, highly recommended, and those that are MOST highly recommended by the experts), season, taste, function, weight, volume, techniques, tips, flavor affinities and things to avoid. Format: Very easy to use, simply look up an item and find out everything you can (and shouldn't) put with it! Readability: I don't think it could be any easier to read the matching charts and the accompanying information. Just remember that there is an explanation of how the matching chart works on page 37. Overall: A great tool for anyone who wants to cook from scratch on occasion, without relying on traditional cookbooks. Challenge yourself to have some fun cooking using your imagination and this wonderfully helpful book.
