The Art of Flavour had my head spinning with fascination and inspiration.I learned a lot about my own cooking habits in The Art of Flavour. After many years as a cook, I usually choose, combine, adjust, blend and season ingredients in an impulsive, instinctive way when I cook a dish, relying on some innate knowledge I have absorbed throughout the years I've spent in the kitchen. I have discovered the Cartesian logic behind my practice.In this wonderful book, Patterson and Aftel demonstrate that cooking well is a personal, exciting process, a flow of choices that starts with an intimate engagement with the ingredients themselves.

The Art of Flavour is a valuable reminder that just as the experience of eating delicious food unfolds in an individual's mouth and nose and mind, so too does the making of it.Praise for Coi: Stories and Recipes by Daniel Patterson:Patterson has written a new kind of cookbook . . .
