    Winner of the 2009 James Beard Book Award for Best Book: Reference and Scholarship

    Great cooking goes beyond following a recipe--it's knowing how to season ingredients to coax the greatest possible flavor from them. Drawing on dozens of leading chefs' combined experience in top restaurants across the country, Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg present the definitive guide to creating "deliciousness" in any dish. Thousands of ingredient entries, organized alphabetically and cross-referenced, provide a treasure trove of spectacular flavor combinations.

    • Great Cookbook!

      Spices are valuable to good health and this book shows you how to use everything you can imagine. It's very interesting just to read, but putting the recipes into action turns a simple dish into something you'd find in a 5 star restaurant. I have many cookbooks, but only NEED this one!
