Yes, it's great. It was recommended to me by the CMC at culinary school. It has pages and pages of food and flavor matches. Makes it fun to find combinations that you never would have considered. We discussed this before.

The people who gave us golf and called it a game are the same people who gave us bag pipes and called it music and haggis and called it food.

Oh, I missed that enabling session....

Isn t it amazing that I am "able to enable myself" even missing enabling threads?

(I need help)

Yep. Disappointing on the "Artistry" bit but as Gary says the flavour matching and other basics you just don't get anywhere else. A must-have.


Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was.

Age is unimportant unless you’re a cheese.

You wanted it anyway...you just didn't know it yet. Oh yes you did - don't deny! You're one of us now...go toward the light...

I've been pushing this book for years - connect the dots and cook without the absent aesthetics.

Well thanks a lot, you enabler you! So while I am at Amazon, I browse a little and end up not only with that one, but a new Stephany Plum novel (Twelve Sharp), another Madhur Jaffrey Indian cookbook (Foolproof Cookery:Indian), and "The River at the Center of the World" by Simon Winchester.

My name is Marie and I have a problem with cookbooks...

Thanks, Sally. Not for enabling me, but for reminding me I own this book.

I bought this right before I started my post graduate work. I'd completely forgotten about it! I think people on eGullet liked it, and IIRC, so did I, when I last opened it:

18 months ago.

It is time for my library to get an infusion of cookbooks. I am on information overload.
