5- The Flavour Thesaurus by Niki Segnit - £18.99

A compendium of pairings, recipes and ideas for the creative cook!

This book was first published in 2010, but I thought i should share it here anyway as it is the book we should all have in our kitchen. The Flavour Thesaurus is a manual , a primer to help understand how and why one flavour might go with another, their points in common and their differences. Interesting and remarkably useful.
