For my birthday this week I decided to treat myself to a new cookbook. I had a list of possible purchases in my mind when I walked into the bookshop but I walked out with none of them. Instead I was drawn to The Flavour Thesaurus by Niki Segnet.
I vaguely remember seeing this book advertised or reviewed or written about somewhere earlier in the year and dismissing it as unnecessary as I already had Stephanie Alexander’s The Cook’s Companion. Who needs another book pointing out good flavour combinations? After spending 10 minutes flicking through The Flavour Thesaurus I decided that I might and having spent the last couple of days reading the book slowly and carefully (not even nearly finished) I can safely say that I do. Utterly delighted with my purchase. Sooooooo many ideas. Sooooo many. Love it.
Love it so much, I’d like to share it with one of you. At a cost though. You gotta make me smile.
Post a joke or nice story or witty insult or limerick or link or ANYTHING that might make me smile before 12 noon Tuesday, 19th October 2010. My favourite (or a favourite picked by random judges if I can’t decide) gets a copy of The Flavour Thesaurus sent to them.
