The Laws of Cooking
And How to Break ThemBook - 2015
Foreword by Alton Brown. The Laws of Cooking... and How to Break Them is a book that encourages improvisation and play, while explaining Justin's unique ideas about "flavour theory"... like colour theory, but for your tongue. By introducing eleven laws based on familiar foods (e.g., "The Law of Peanut Butter and Jelly"; "The Law of Coffee, Cream, and Sugar"), the book teaches the reader why certain flavours combine brilliantly, and then shows how these combinations work in 110 more complex and inventive recipes (Tomato Soup with "Grilled Cheese" Ravioli; Scallops with Black Sesame and Cherry). At the end of many of the recipes, Justin "breaks the law," by adding a seemingly discordant flavour that takes the combination to a new level. The book features more than 100 images by renowned photographer Daniel Krieger.
