Watch out for Nikis long-anticipated follow-up, More Flavours focusing on plant-led pairings coming in May 2023. 'Delightful and informative ... I love Nikis style of writing packed with knowledge and information, but conveyed with such a lightness of touch' YOTAM OTTOLENGHI 'The books I value most are those I return to again and again. Such has been the case with The Flavour Thesaurus' NIGEL SLATER 'An eclectic combination of dictionary, recipe book, travelogue and memoir ... A deceptively simple little masterpiece' SUNDAY TIMES Ever wondered why one flavour works with another? Or lacked inspiration for what to do with a bundle of beetroot? The Flavour Thesaurus was the first book to examine what goes with what, pair by pair and is divided into flavour themes including Meaty, Cheesy, Woodland and Floral Fruity. Within these sections it follows the form of Roget's Thesaurus, listing 99 popular ingredients alphabetically, and for each one suggests unique flavour pairings that range from the classic to the bizarre. You will find traditional pairings: pork & apple, lamb & apricot, cucumber & dill; contemporary favourites like chocolate & chilli and goat's cheese & beetroot, and interesting but unlikely-sounding pairings like black pudding & chocolate, lemon & beef, blueberry & mushroom, and watermelon & oyster. There are nearly a thousand entries in all, with 200 recipes and suggestions embedded throughout the text. Now featuring a new foreword by Bee Wilson and a fold-out poster of the flavour wheel, The Flavour Thesaurus is a highly useful, and covetable, reference book for cooking - it will keep you up at night reading.

Delightful and informative ... I love Nikis style of writing packed with knowledge and information, but conveyed with such a lightness of touch. This is full of ideas for those who dont want a prescriptive approach to recipes * Yotam Ottolenghi * An eclectic combination of dictionary, recipe book, travelogue and memoir Erudite and inspiring, practical and fun, it will make you salivate, laugh, take issue and feel vindicated Segnit does for flavour what Lucca Turin achieved for scent in Perfumes: The A-Z Guide. A deceptively simple little masterpiece, set to take its place by McGee on Food and Cooking as a household Bible * Sunday Times * Im a huge fan of cookery recipes, and I heartily recommend The Flavour Thesaurus by Niki Segnit. It lists more than 4,000 possible combinations of 99 flavours, with lots of recipes to inspire you * Kate Winslet, Harper's Bazaar * An exquisite guide to combining flavours * Observer * Every time I return to it, which is often, it makes me tingle with happy greed * Bee Wilson * Segnit cleared the path for me to break free of the hackneyed old classics and develop interesting pairings of my own * Ruby Tandoh * An original and inspiring resource * Heston Blumenthal * It has intrigued, inspired, amused and occasionally infuriated me all year, and will for years to come * Nigel Slater, Observer Books of the Year * Every cook should own a copy ... [it] will revolutionise your cooking * John Torode * Follow this book and you will impress your guests like never before * Atul Kochhar, The Times * A forensic yet fun exploration of flavour combinations and why they work * Guardian * A bible for anyone who cooks by grabbing ingredients from the fridge * Independent * The Flavour Thesaurus is a fascinating book for culinary geeks who like to know the origin and science behind ingredient combinations * Caterer * Inspiration for figuring out what to do with the random tins left in my cupboard * Evening Standard * A fun and often eyebrow-raising read * Fuchsia Dunlop * This imaginative and beautiful little book deserves a place on the shelves of every serious home cook * Spectator *
