Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I learned a lot about my own cooking habits in The Art of Flavor. After many years as a cook, I usually choose, combine, adjust, blend, and season ingredients in an impulsive, instinctive way when I cook a dish, relying on some innate knowledge I have absorbed throughout the years I’ve spent in the kitchen. I have discovered the Cartesian logic behind my practice.” Jacques Pepin, chef, cookbook author, and PBS cooking series host
“Friendly and accessible…Cooks at every level of experience are likely to find fresh clarity and new insights.” Shelf Awareness
“Explore[s] the elusive concept of flavor…Fascinating to anyone interested in the science of cooking.” Publishers Weekly
“Adventurous cooks who are interested in trying something new will find some unique ideas and recipes.” Library Journal
“A complexly articulated but original approach to understanding how to cook with a chef’s intuition for delicious results.” Booklist
“A welcome complement to the likes of Brillat-Savarin and Harold McGee and worthy of a place in any cooking enthusiast’s library.” Kirkus Reviews
“An amazingly thorough and holistic investigation into deliciousness. It serves as a brilliant guide, pushing you to trust your senses and experiment with food.” René Redzepi, Danish chef
