Are you a food geek? A closet (or out-of-the-closet) gourmand who loves tinkering with ingredients and flavors? A gatherer of knowledge, trivia, and factoids? If so, Karen Page’s gorgeous hardcover book, The Vegetarian Flavor Bible is for you. It’s filled with more information than could possibly fit into one person’s head – no matter how big of a nerd he or she is. You’ll find herbs, spices, nuts, greens, vegetables, fruits, grains – – their flavors, description, nutritional profiles, flavor affinities, botanical relatives, calories – *take a breath* – and suggested ways to use them.
The Vegetarian Flavor Bible is the latest tome by Karen Page and it’s rather awe-inspiring, as you can see from the above description. Karen holds a certificate in Plant-based Nutrition from Cornell (T. Colin Campbell’s program) and has twice received a James Bear Award for other books; plus she was the wine columnist for The Washington Post. Oh, and by the way, her husband, Andrew Dornenburg, another author, took the photos that grace the book.
