Everyone has a few favorite flavor combinations, like ginger and scallion or chocolate and cherry, and it’s always a delight to stumble upon new ones — whether at home or in a restaurant. The Vegetarian Flavor Bible lists dozens of worthwhile combinations for most of the ingredients you are likely to encounter in your kitchen, providing a jumping-off point for a million different gustatory experiments. There are also quotes and commentary from chefs, tips and techniques, and a ton of beautiful photos by the author’s husband and collaborator, Andrew Dornenburg. It’s one-stop shopping for serious inspiration: the perfect cure for culinary writer’s block.
