“[Chef Timothy Hollingsworth] also treated himself to a copy of the new work by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page, THE FLAVOR BIBLE, which brought back memories…When he first moved up from commis to cook at The French Laundry, John Fraser (today the executive chef of Dovetail in New York City) had recommended that he read one of the authors’ earlier collaborations, CULINARY ARTISTRY. The book features extensive lists of ingredients and other foods they get along with. Hollingsworth, who was then starting to participate in those nightly menu meetings, spent his wee hours studying those lists so that he’d look like he knew what he was doing in the meetings when fellow cooks with finely honored palates and improvisational talent turned to him and said, ‘What to you want to run?’….Hollingsworth broke out his copy of THE FLAVOR BIBLE, the new book by Dornenburg and Page, whose earlier CULINARY ARTISTRY had gotten him through those menu meetings during his formative years at The French Laundry. He thumbed it to death that night, looking up possible accompaniments for caviar, for cod, for scallops, and for any number of ingredients, both assigned and elective, that he had been grappling with. He stayed up until three in the morning like that, filling his head with new ideas, sketching them in his notebook, getting ready for the next day, a day in which — if nothing else — he would cook from the heart.”

I love this book because it tells you what flavors go together.  So when I happen to have a piece of lamb at my house and don’t want to run to the store, I will look in the book and see what flavors go well with lamb that I already have in my pantry.  I also love their review of the four [tastes]: bitter, salty, sweet and sour.  Learning to cook starts with experimenting on how to balance these flavors.”

“The great and revered restaurateur Savarin is reputed to have said, ‘An animal swallows its food; a man eats it — but only a man of intelligence knows how to dine.’

Fine dining has been a great interest of gourmets and gourmands for centuries, and the distinctions between what is considered to be good and what is not is often set forth by critics, who state their views in newspapers, magazines and books, and now even on radio, television, or the World Wide Web. Since the establishment of the first restaurant, as we now know them, in Paris in about 1765, the views of critics have played an important role in the success of a restaurant; indeed, they can even’make or break’ an establishment.

The wife and husband team of Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page has set out to make use of their skills and experiences as ‘restaurant insiders’ to examine the processes and the people involved in the restaurant review process in different cities and different extablishments in the United States.

Dornenburg and Page have adopted the paradigm set forth by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (1996), whose Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention refers to three considerations necessary for examining the role of creativity in enterprises such as fine dining. The elements involve (a) the individual person or talent, (b) the domain and discipline in which the work occurs, and (c) the field that renders the judgment. DINING OUT builds on those three areas in examining the role of the restaurant critic.

Critical reviews of dining establishments different significantly from critical reviews of creative or artistic works such as theater, musical performances, visual art, and related fields. In assessing and critiquing a meal, the reviewer must judge the food, service decor, ambiance, and other factors that may change from day to day, meal to meal, and moment to moment. Typically, only one reviewer will prepare an analysis of the event, and typically, no two events will be exactly alike.

Because restaurant reviewers see different presentations, have different educational backgrounds and experiences, and present their views in different ways, an examination of the overall efforts of those who evaluate the quality of an establishment is valuable; Dornenburg and Page set out to examine these processes from the viewpoints of critics, chefs and restaurateurs. Dornenburg, a trained chef, has cooked in some of the most renowned establishments in New York and Boston. Page, his wife and coauthor, is a graduate of the Harvard Business School and Northwestern University. Their earlier collaborations resulted in the James Beard Award-winning BECOMING A CHEF: With Recipes and Reflections from America’s Leading Chefs (1995) and CULINARY ARTISTRY (1996). This third book in the trilogy makes a very interesting and important contribution to the understanding of fine dining and the ways in which it is examined for guests and customers.

DINING OUT might well find its way onto a food afficianado’s reading table, into the office of a restaurateur or budding food critic, or into a classroom. The material is good and can be applied to a wide range of settings. When taken with BECOMING A CHEF and CULINARY ARTISTRYDornenburg and Page have compiled more than 1100 pages of material useful for serious chefs and restaurateurs, teachers and students, or just plain ‘foodies’.”
