5.0 out of 5 stars Explored and conquered, 22 Dec 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Exploring Taste + Flavour: The Art of Combining Hot, Sour, Salty and Sweet in 150 Recipes (Hardcover)
It looks difficult but it's not. This book gives you a map to an amazing culinary Labyritnth. I've cooked a number of these recipes... the flavours are big and the results are more than impressive. I was hesitant when I saw the lists of unusual ingredients, but nothing ventures, nothing gained. At the end of my exploration I have a new respect for flavour and am no longer afraid to plunge into the great unknown of the Thai supermarket.

This review is from: Exploring Taste + Flavour: The Art of Combining Hot, Sour, Salty and Sweet in 150 Recipes (Hardcover)
This is the art of shared exploration of gastrozones. Tom Kime has an engaging enthusiasm and a passion for passing on what he has learnt from his travels, particularly in Vietnam.
While diet is food combining for health Kime's argument is that good food, that is food that satisfies the demands of one's taste buds is a simple balance of flavours-sweet,salt,hot and sour.
There is much to applaud in the informative text and their illustrations. The typeface for recipes is a little small-luckily the shopping lists are of a sensible type size.
The recipes work on the page to conjure sensation and off the page in the dish before you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, 12 Feb 2007

This review is from: Exploring Taste + Flavour: The Art of Combining Hot, Sour, Salty and Sweet in 150 Recipes (Hardcover)
I've tried about half of the recipes in this book and every single one has been outstanding. Friends and family are always impressed - Kime's recipes are more adventurous than I usually go for but are definitely worth the effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for learning about hot, salty, sweet and sour..., 23 Nov 2009
This review is from: Exploring Taste + Flavour: The Art of Combining Hot, Sour, Salty and Sweet in 150 Recipes (Hardcover)
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!
