Some people are known as supertasters. Possessing the gustatory equivalent of perfect pitch, they can discern nuances and details of flavor not detectable by others. Niki Segnit is clearly such a person. Besides being a beautifully written and inspiring resource guaranteed to ignite your inspiration, "The Flavor Thesaurus" is a love poem to the infinite pleasures of combining ingredients to create new flavor combinations — as told by someone with a granular understanding of taste and an abiding passion for the pleasures of food.
