THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE Named One of “10 of the Season’s Best Cookbooks” by the HOUSTON CHRONICLE

Wednesday, December 10, 2014


“It’s hard to imagine Karen Page topping herself after the groundbreaking THE FLAVOR BIBLE in which she and her husband, Andrew Dornenburg, exhaustively organized and cross-referenced flavor combinations. It was a new, mind-blowing look at how to create dishes based on compatible flavors instead of recipes. Page now takes that same approach with a plant-based diet rich in vegetables. The result is another inspiring work shot through with history, science and green goodness.”
Greg Morago of the Houston Chronicle, on THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE

Wait a minute — we thought Texas was land of the omnivores?!  So you can imagine our surprise and delight to discover this morning that the Houston Chronicle‘s Greg Morago had named THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE to his list of “10 of the Season’s Best Cookbooks”!

We’re beyond thrilled to imagine Houstonians picking up the book and giving it a second look, thanks to Greg’s very kind words in today’s paper.  (And our congratulations to the entire list of Morago’s 10 picks:  Bar Tartine by Nicolaus Balla and Cortney Burns, American Farm-to-Table by Mario Batali and Jim Webster, How to Cook Everything Fast by Mark Bittman, Heritage by Sean Brock, Harold Dieterle’s Kitchen Notebook by Harold Dieterle, Mallmann on Fire by Francis Mallmann with Peter Kaminsky, THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE by Karen Page, How to Roast by Michael Ruhlman, Marcus Off-Duty by Marcus Samuelsson with Roy Finamore, and My Perfect Pantry by Geoffrey Zakarian with Amy Stevenson and Margaret Zakarian.)

Heartfelt thanks from both of us here in the Big Apple to Greg Morago out in the Lone Star State!
