Good Books: Niki Segnit's Flavour Thesaurus Good Books to Read: Niki Segnit's Flavour Thesaurus

by Peter Smith

March 14, 2011

Segnit's book is more poetic than encyclopedic, more of a launching point for kitchen inspiration than a comprehensive examination of odors and flavor science. For that, Martin Lersh on the excellent blog Khymos suggests the more comprehensive and equally impressive The Flavor Bible. Certainly, there's room for more exploration of the molecular science of flavors, but this book represents a provocative, visual way to rethink the recipe.
