Calling all spice fans, adventurers, and curious cooks: explore the world's spices, create your own spice blends, and take your cooking to the next level. Spice is a cookbook like no other--one that will help you better understand the science behind the art of cooking with spices. If you've ever wondered what to do with that unused jar of sumac, why some spices taste stronger than others, how to make your own garam masala, or simply which are the best spices for chicken, this inspirational guide has all the answers. Spice outlines the science behind the flavors and helps you choose, with greater confidence and intuition, how to use spices that perfectly complement each other. A "periodic table" of spices shows the connections between flavor compounds, and explains how spices can be grouped into distinct flavor families. Flavor maps explore the key regions of the spice world, including Southeast Asia, the Middle East, the Americas, and the Indian subcontinent, and show the spice palettes of individual countries and cuisines. Spice profiles--organized by flavor groups such as "pungent," "sweet," or "nutty"--showcase each of the world's spices and suggest food pairings, spice pairings, blend ideas, and how to cook each spice to best release its flavor and aroma. Finally, spicy recipes for blends, butters, rubs, and pastes showcase authentic spice mixes from around the world, and suggest innovative combinations that you might never have considered before. Spice is an indispensable kitchen companion that home cooks will turn to time and time again to learn and innovate.

In this brilliant, engrossing work, Jack Turner explores an era—from ancient times through the Renaissance—when what we now consider common condiments were valued in gold and blood. Spices made sour medieval wines palatable, camouflaged the smell of corpses, and served as wedding night aphrodisiacs. Indispensible for cooking, medicine, worship, and the arts of love, they were thought to have magical properties and were so valuable that they were often kept under lock and key. For some, spices represented Paradise, for others, the road to perdition, but they were potent symbols of wealth and power, and the wish to possess them drove explorers to circumnavigate the globe—and even to savagery. Following spices across continents and through literature and mythology, Spice is a beguiling narrative about the surprisingly vast influence spices have had on human desire. Includes eight pages of color photographs. One of the Best Books of the Year: Discover Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor, San Francisco Chronicle

Food of Bali

Bali's vibrant culture attracts thousands of visitors each year; yet few people have tasted authentic Balinese cooking because it is rarely served in tourist venues. The secrets of the Balinese kitchen are presented for the very first time in this volume, which includes recipes for unusual dishes presented in an easy-to-follow format, alongside a selection of traditional Balinese meat, fish and poultry dishes. With a wealth of information on Balinese culture and gastronomy, The Food of Bali enables the reader to reproduce the enchantment of Bali at home. Heinz von Holzen, a chef and food consultant based in Bali, trained in his native Switzerland before working in Holland, Australia, and Singapore, and came to Bali in 1990. He was surprised to hear so many people claim that there was "no such thing as Balinese cuisine," and began working with Lother Arsana, collecting authentic recipes for the type of food prepared in Balinese homes. An enthusiastic food photographer since 1987, he also styled and photographed the food for this book.
