THE VEGETARIAN FLAVOR BIBLE is an essential reference book for nutritionists, registered dietitians, nutrition students, vegans and vegetarians. This beautifully illustrated book begins by providing the reader with a history of vegetarianism through the ages. Subsequent chapters entice the reader with detailed and practical tips on ways to enhance flavor without adding calorie laden ingredients.The book also discusses the nuanced differences between taste, mouthfeel, aroma and the X factor and how these contribute to a totally yummy vegetarian experience.
A highlight in this book is the flavor matching chapter which is filled with vegetarian ingredients from A to Z. For each ingredient the author includes its flavor, seasonality, a description of the ingredient, the nutritional information, the best cooking technique, and the dishes it is best for. (More)
