Savoring the World

By Harold Mcgee

  • Hardback
  • £30.00

"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 McHee

Savouring 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

It has to be Liam and in his first book, he introduces his latest inventions and favourite bakes that are guaranteed to get you in the kitchen. Cheeky Treats is a cookbook like no other, packed with fantastic flavours, wonderfully creative bakes, and fun and beautiful photography that captures Liam's personality and flair. Warning: if you're looking for a Victoria Sponge recipe - look elsewhere!'Cheeky Treats, a spangly, Technicolor, many-faceted recipe book... It is distinguished not by the two kilos of icing sugar in the Football Cake (and that's just the buttercream!), nor the very simple, incredibly effective, domino pattern on his salted millionaire dominoes, nor his vertiginous layering or moments of French patisserie perfectionism, but by the joie de vivre conveyed by all those things, and the rest.' - The Guardian
