The Flavor Bible
The Flavor Bible is not a cookbook in the traditional sense. How is it designed to be used in the home kitchen? Karen: We set out with a very modest goal: We wanted to create the ultimate cookbook. While The Flavor Bible doesn't contain a single recipe, it offers virtually endless inspiration through suggesting ways to work with a particular ingredient. Essentially, The Flavor Bible is an alphabetical reference of hundreds of ingredients -- from apples to zucchini blossoms -- along with the herbs, spices and other seasonings that will best enhance their flavor. So, with the ease of consulting a thesaurus, you can look up any ingredient, learn or be reminded of what goes with it, and invent a dish on the spot around the combination.
