THE FLAVOR BIBLE Recommended On MasterClass.com

On MasterClass.com, in the Culinary Arts offering “Creativity and Craft,” bartenders Lynnette Marrero & Ryan Chetiyawardana mention THE FLAVOR BIBLE as a trusted resource for creativity:

[00:02:15.85] Collaboration, for me, is key to creativity because you can bounce ideas off of somebody. And then I always look to food guides and things like THE FLAVOR BIBLE, and things that help me just kind of understand how to compare and contrast, and constantly remind myself that you can take certain roles and learn them, and then choose to break them at any time and then be really successful to make something that’s new. So that’s how my creative process works.

Weight Loss Expert Aaron Day’s Most Recommended Cookbook: “THE FLAVOR BIBLE”

Nutritional therapist Aaron Day of FatForWeightLoss.com names his “Top 5 Cookbooks of All Time” in a video on YouTube.com — and THE FLAVOR BIBLE is among them:

“[4:12] [THE FLAVOR BIBLE] is probably my favorite book…I use this book all the time…A lot of cooks and chefs use this book to make their menus and to pair different flavors together and take those flavor combinations and turn them into recipes.

“This is more of a ‘meta-cookbook’ — it doesn’t have any recipes in it; it just has flavor combinations. And sometimes flavor combinations are all you need to come up with your own recipes that taste really delicious. Because if you’re hitting those tried-and-true [flavor combinations] that we’ve dealt with for centuries, then you can’t really go wrong.

“So THE FLAVOR BIBLE is probably my highest recommendation out of all these books just because i use it so much — I’ve used it in all of my own cookbooks. And those flavor combinations really are indestructible. So, great book…”

Aspirations to Food As An Art Form? Read CULINARY ARTISTRY

Alan at TheAngryEater.blog mentions CULINARY ARTISTRY as a treasured part of his Kitchen Library must-haves:

CULINARY ARTISTRY is one of the first books that really grabbed my attention. The copy I own has literally traveled with me across the globe and is barely recognizable. It has some recipes but it’s not really a cookbook. There are unique sections that outline ideal food and seasoning combinations that really helped me out when my brain was stuck. There are opinions on food and menus from world-renowned chefs about why certain food combinations just work. If you have a deep interest in food as an art form or have aspirations of becoming a chef, then I highly recommend this book.

The Kitchen Library List Must Haves – THE ANGRY EATER

The Kitchen Library list contains volumes that have given me inspiration and entertainment throughout my career as a cook and chef. Some of these titles have stowed away in my backpack across Europe and the U.S., and have kept me company during the tough times of a young cook.

THE FLAVOR BIBLE An “Indispensable” “Must-Have”

Matt Riklin of The Jewish Herald-Voice reviews THE FLAVOR BIBLE, referring to it as “a must-have” and “indispensable.”

While perusing cookbooks, I noticed one that caught my eye because of how often I used to have it on my kitchen counter. THE FLAVOR BIBLE by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page….A must-have …Rarely do I find a book, cookbook or novel that requires its own key to being able to understand the content.…Once it is understood, it quickly becomes an indispensable kitchen tool. It is simultaneously a puzzle, brain teaser, recipe collection and food thesaurus that reads like a dictionary. As it turns out, food really is an international language with its own set of rules, but once it is understood, it can be used anywhere in the world. I highly recommend getting a taste of how to talk food with the assistance of THE FLAVOR BIBLE.”

‘The Flavor Bible’

Cooking has a language that only some of us can speak fluently. Just as so many struggled with a foreign language in school, we also may encounter similar obstacles when we take the leap from TV food fan to home chef – as we cook sans recipe, cookbook or video.
