Chowhound.com‘s Maryse Chevriere names the “12 Vegetarian Cookbooks That Should Be In Every Kitchen” — which include THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE:
“Consider this a little less cookbook and a lot more all-encompassing reference guide that connects the dots between all the different ingredients and flavors in the spectrum of a vegetarian diet. Using the knowledge of legendary vegetable-based chefs, Page has created an A-Z index of ingredients, under which each has a list of complementary seasonings and cooking techniques.
Instead of telling you exactly what to cook, it provides you with a confident jumping off point to explore and play around in the kitchen. Added bonuses like a timeline history of vegetarian cuisine and personal anecdotes from the chefs that helped provide the content for the book make it all the more worthwhile.”

Source Weekly‘s Lisa Sipe features THE FLAVOR BIBLE in her article “Food Pairing Bible Every Cook Must Have”:
“This was my life until I discovered THE FLAVOR BIBLE: The Essential Guide to Culinary Creativity, Based on the Wisdom of America’s Most Imaginative Chefs by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg. I found it through an obsession with cookbooks, I’m always looking to add to my collection. A side note here for my fellow cookbook lovers, the Deschutes Public Library is your friend. See if they have the cookbook you want to buy and if they do take a recipe or two for a test drive before you purchase. This has saved me cash and shelf space.
THE FLAVOR BIBLE changed my life as a home cook.”
Are you a recipe follower? I was and it made me envious of people who could just peruse their pantry and whip up something from nothing. My partner does this with success most of the time. Although his recent chipotle sauerkraut, arugula, blue cheese and refried bean burrito was an epic fail, too many competing flavors.
