5.0 out of 5 stars A delicious read..., 25 Jun 2010
This review is from: The Flavour Thesaurus (Hardcover)
The best cookbooks become my preferred bedtime reading, piling up next to the bed. The Flavour Thesaurus is top of the pile and it's gone one better - it's jumped the queue ahead of Steig Larsson as my preferred Tube journey read. The Flavour Thesaurus is anecdotally wittier than Nigel Slater's 'Toast' and more use than `LaRousse' (which rarely makes it off my kitchen shelf). Niki Segnit's observations on flavours, their combinations and cooking are as delicious as her recipes. Her genuine love of food makes this book deliciously moorish; each bite-sized entry makes me want for more. Like Ferrero Rocher, one just isn't enough. There are very few cookbooks that are researched and written as brilliantly as this that need not rely on high quality photograpy to tempt the senses. This will make you laugh and get the gastric juices flowing. The Flavour Thesaurus actually makes me throw on my apron and get messy in the kitchen whilst indulging in a glass of champagne and a Marlboro. I will be giving this book to every truly good cook I know. They won't be disappointed.

Always good to come across someone who will still admit to enjoying a smoke. But these reviews have made me terribly curious: The book's release was only a few days ago, yet you & other reviewers imply that you've had it for some time--did you all get advance copies? Don't think it's a re-issue, as newspaper review I read this weekend didn't mention that being the case.

Like many titles this was available on Amazon weeks before its official release.
