Bitter, herbal, smoky, creamy, nutty, earthy, salty, sweet, tart, spicy, umami - the principle flavours in which all recipes stem from. They are the flavour centers of gravity which pull ingredients into a coherent compelling whole. They are the flavours we adore and that get our taste buds asking for more. These principle flavours are what makes us passionate about food and drink.
Organized around these eleven distinctive tastes, The Flavour Principle features more than thirty gorgeous menus with complementary—and sometimes surprising—beverage pairings. Covering flavours from all over the world, this cookbook is a journey around the globe. Modern and eclectic in approach, The Flavour Principle has broad appeal to food and wine lovers. Like A Matter of Taste before it, The Flavour Principle sets a new standard in food-and-beverage pairing cookbooks.
