She does carry on a bit about some weird things that she might think is ‘endearing‘ but it‘s a really good idea for more intuitive cooks.

This book works just like a regular thesaurus.... look up one ingredient and it gives the creative cook numerous ideas of flavor combinations that will enhance and compliment it.
And I couldn‘t resist copying @Cinfhen with her idea of some favorite foods that are #goodtogether !
Moules & frites, tea & cake, hazelnut & chocolate, buratta & peaches 😋

EloisaJames Cool!! 4y
Cinfhen Yum!!! And that book is awesome!!! MUST STACK 😍 4y
Itchyfeetreader I love this book I lost a copy in a house move and keep meaning to replace it 4y
Kalalalatja You, @Cinfhen and @erzascarletbookgasm are making me hungry!! 😋 4y

#day7 #cookbooklove #photoadaynov16 I am a total cookbook-aholic and found it so hard to narrow down to favorites! Love Ottolenghi's veggie-centric Plenty, a pair of Delia's seasonal books from the 90's are my most well-used (lovely pics!), Nigel is my favorite food writer hands down and this one features a chapter on each for his fave foods, and the Flavor thesaurus is a unique non-recipe book that inspires flavor combinations... love them all 💗

juliannebenford Ooh, I'm intrigued by Plenty and the flavour book! 6y
KarenUK @juliannebenford both are sooo good. Flavor book is a great gift for a creative cook... 💗 6y
