    Went through Flavor bible earlier this afternoon to come up with a couple dozen potential themes for a monthly cooking club. Wound up with quite a few possibilites I probably would not have thought up on my own.

    I bought Flavor Bible yesterday and started reading today, definitely happy with this purchase so far.

    I have and enjoy Flavor Bible also, but has anyone actually read the thing? I just browse for an ingredient or an idea when I can't think of something.

    I pretty much 'read' the whole thing, except where the ingredient was something I really do not like. There were lots of interesting flavor combos I would have never thought of. But I can't say i absorbed a lot of the info, as there was way too much.

    I've read the first 2 chapters. With the flavor combinations after that, I tend to just browse through them when I get bored, trying to make up dishes in my head.

    I read all of the actual writing in the book and use the flavor paring as a reference. I simply believe it is a wonderful tool to use. I use it to search regional flavors and then more parings within it. Southern food Crosses into Indian and French/Spanish cooking and the like. A little more indepth then just flavor (flavors, Ingredients, Textures, cooking methods and styles.) It's a tool that utilizes your own mind. It can lend itself to the way you think and cook if used appropriately.

    The King James version is far superior to the new international version.
