The Flavour Thesaurus
By Niki Segnit

Do you ever get stuck on finding an inspiring flavour combination for your next cocktailian or culinary creation? Well this book might well be your flavour pairing savour. It contains not only an extensive list of successful flavour combinations, but recipes and ideas for creative cooks which can easily be adapted for budding bar chefs.

What’s more some serious kitchen heavyweights have given this book their seal of approval. UK celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall from the River Cottage has described the work as: “Intriguing, surprising and remarkably useful,” whilst Heston Blumenthal reckons it’s: “An original and inspiring resource”.


Apart from flavour wheels to guide you to a successful paring the book is incredibly well indexed and easy to use. A handy tool in any bar – you’ll just have to fight the chefs to keep it from disappearing into the kitchen.
