EVERYONE who loves food should buy this book. It talks about balancing the groups of flavours, hot, salty, sweet and sour, to create any type of dish, not just those of an Asian origin.
The chart in the front can help you create new dishes, using Tom's recipes just for ideas. I've tried lots of them and they are easy to adapt if you don't have all the right ingredients.
Buy it for the pork belly recipe and cooking technique alone - it could revolutionise Sundays!
