Product description

Synopsis

Four-star chef Gary Kunz has teamed up with food writer Peter Kaminsky to put together a cookbook that looks precisely at what taste is. From "aromatic" to "floral herbal" to "picante", they have identified the 14 basic tastes in the chef's palate. Each of the book's 130 recipes teaches the reader how to use these fundamental building blocks, establishing basic principles so that the reader will have not only the means for creating his or her own masterpieces, but also the language to describe what the inner dynamic of flavour is. Wine lovers have long had a vocabulary to describe the complexity of wines, but gourmands have had no such lexicon - until now!

About the Author

Four-star chef Gray Kunz was voted Best American Chef by the James Beard Foundation in 1995. Peter Kaminsky has written extensively about food and travel both as food critic for New York magazine and a contributor to The New York Times.
