The Cook's Book of Intense Flavors
101 Surprising Flavor Combinations
and Extraordinary Recipes That Excite Your Palate
and Pleasure Your Senses

by Robert and Molly Krause

 

The Cook's Book of Intense Flavors contains 101 extraordinary combinations and accompanying recipes that show how to get the most flavor out of any ingredient—whether it's an innovative twist on a classic pairing, flavor that is over-the-top decadent, or inspiration for the fresh asparagus from the farmer's market or the balsamic vinegar in the pantry. It is an indispensable guide to every type of flavor combination from exotic and decadent to classics made exciting and modem.

Cooking is about creating maximum flavor. While technique is necessary for any recipe to hold its own, it is intense, rich and unexpected flavor that sets your senses and your taste buds tingling. Husband and wife cooking team Robert and Molly Krause, who have headed several successful restaurants, will share the insider secrets that got their restaurant, Krause Dining, on Food and Wine magazine's 2008 list of "100 best" recipes, restaurants and wines.

The Cook's Book of Intense Flavors will give the both the beginning and the advanced home chef a look inside the kitchen of the couple who is single handedly building an international food scene in Lawrence, Kansas. This one of a kind cookbook will make readers rethink the way they approach food, including:

  • Learning how to cook more innovatively by adding an unexpected note such as cumin to a traditional flavor combination such as cinnamon and cocoa
  • Cooking more intuitively by learning which flavors work together and how to balance different flavor profiles such as sweet, sour, savory, and spicy
  • Getting more excitement from cooking as they taste how flavors shift and evolve during the cooking process
