“Pairings, recipes and ideas for the creative cook”…and the creative bartender!
Although intended for cooks, Niki Segnit’s book will also apply to professional and home bartenders.
The author has gathered 99 flavours and sorted them into 16 different families (spicy, fresh fruits, creamy fruity, citrussy, bramble & hedge, floral fruity, earthy, etc.). From there she’s catalogued an extensive number of possible pairings. Some are familiar, others are surprising, if not audacious. Coffee and avocado, coffee and goat’s cheese anyone?
While some pairings might be difficult to adapt to drink creation, some can serve as the base of some rather interesting and original concoctions. Hum…let’s see what I can make of those parsnips in the fridge!
