The Flavor Bible
« on: July 11, 2013, 10:43:08 PM »
While taking with a chef this morning, he recommended a book that is in most chef libraries. The book is called "The Flavor Bible". I was wondering if anyone else has read through this book and if they found it helpful in the area of pizza sauce, pizza making, etc...  Thanks for any feedback.

Tom, I purchased that book several years ago. Like almost all of my cookbooks they are read once or twice, then put on a shelf, then into a box when the shelf fills up with new cook books. The book it self is an encyclopedia of information. I have not looked at it since starting on the pizza quest, but may dig it out.


What are your impressions of the book?

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the reply. I have only seen parts of the book on Amazon "look inside the book". The chef and myself were having a discussion about pizza sauce and the conversation shifted to other foods in the restaurant. This book was one that he personal owned in the beginning of his career. He highly recommended it as a basis for understand food creations better. I was just curious if this book helped int he area of pizza sauce. However, I was curious if anyone used it as a regular reference book or just put it on the shelf after one read. I will see if my library has the book before i make the purchase. Thanks again for the feedback.
