Every great dish has a centre of gravity, a flavour or essence that pulls together other ingredients into a coherent and compelling whole. Indian curry spices, fiery Thai chilis, lemony citrus, smoky barbecue rubs—these are all flavours that we adore and that get our taste buds asking for more. Flavour is, quite simply, what makes us passionate about food and drink. At last, here is a cookbook that focuses on this fundamental concept.

Organized around eleven distinctive tastes, from spicy to tart to bitter and beyond, The Flavour Principle features more than thirty gorgeous menus with complementary—and sometimes surprising—beverage pairings. Covering flavours from all over the world, this cookbook is a journey around the globe. Modern and eclectic in approach, The Flavour Principle has broad appeal to food and wine lovers. Like A Matter of Taste before it, The Flavour Principle sets a new standard in food and- beverage pairing cookbooks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Flavour Principle Great photos. Interesting organization, by flavour. Took some getting used to but definitely worth it. Have already used it a couple of times. It is also nice to use the wine suggestions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanted it; hummed and hawed; got it; love it. This was not just another cookbook for me as I am a follower of both the authors, Lucy (online and in the Globe and Mail) and Beppi (in the G&M) so familiarity with their food and drink approaches made me want it from the day they began this collaboration. Something I like in it is the makability of Lucy's recipes, if I can find the ingredients in my small town, that is. I have a section for Lucy alone, in one of my fat three-ring binders and hers are one of the first I go to when I want a recipe I trust. Beppi writes mostly for Canadian vinophiles(?) with frequent mentions of wines available in B.C., which I appreciate. The book is good one to take to a comfy chair, with all the great food information; who knew--some people don't tasty bitter, some do and love it, and others do, and can't stand it? Then they give you a selection of bitter foods recipes to try, along with tipples that go well with them. I've only had the book for a week or so, but looking forward to getting further into it. Only disappointment: I'm so far from TO, there is likely no way I'll ever have it autographed!
