5.0 out of 5 stars Like a book of spells for the kitchen
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 April 2019
I saw this and the science of food book in the London science museum and was hooked!

The layout is very enticing and draws you in. Associations with different ingredients is set out clearly and has already provided me with some amazing insights. I love science and cooking, so knowing how to get the best of the flavours on offer is brilliant.

Yes, it’s probably obvious to lots of people but I love the way the “rules” of the game are set out
