We all want to be more knowledgeable about the food we eat, and this is the essential storecupboard handbook that no discerning cook should be without.

Savoring the World

Harold Mcgee
Authors:
Harold Mcgee

"Marcel Proust's famous madeleine surprised his narrator with a strong emotion that he traced back to an idyllic, forgotten time in childhood. My first taste of grouse as part of a traditional British lunch seemed full of significance even though there had been no grouse in my past, and it was as if I were touching something essential in myself and in the world. That mystifying surpise set me off on a search for the latest insights of sense and flavour."Harold McHeeSavouring the World is a wide-ranging survey of taste and smell - two senses that have a powerful but largely overlooked influence on our everyday lives. This book will not only explain how these senses truly work, but also how to enjoy them more actively to transform your relationship with flavour.Harold McGee's acclaimed On Food & Cooking won the André Simon Food Book of the Year and is a masterpiece of gastronomic writing; a rich, addictive blend of chemistry, history and anecdote that no self-respecting foodie or cook can afford to be without. Savouring the World promises to intrigue and amaze foodies just as much.'McGee is the man who transformed most curious people's understanding about food.' Guardian Weekend
