This book has changed my life. I have read it from cover-to-cover and it has utterly changed the way I think about cooking and layering of flavors. I was pretty damned good home chef before, but this has upped my game. My spice collection had quadrupled and I think about spices now much differently than I did before this book came into my world.-Photocelt
If you want to upgrade your dining experience, no matter what cuisine you follow, this is the book for you. It goes in depth into lots of different spices, though like the author says it's not encyclopedic, so it's missing some I'd like to have known more about (chervil) that are a bit more obscure. But not only does the book give you a good sense of spices and how to blend them, but what spices go well with each other, and what foods they accent the best. Another word about the book's presentation. This is a book you could easily leave on a coffee table or put in a place of honor in the kitchen. Not only is it well bound, but each page is very very well designed and beautiful on its own.-W. Gordon
