The winner of a copy of The Flavor Bible is

Christy Durrance!!

Congratulations, Christy! Please email me ( with your mailing address and we will send you your book!

There are lots of things that I love to do. One of my favorites is coming up with new recipes. Some are my variation of a classic – I obviously didn’t invent Chicken Pot Pie. But, some are my own creations.

I’m pretty good at paring foods. I trust my judgement when it comes to knowing if flavors will complement each other. But, having The Flavor Bible at my side has allowed me to combine things I didn’t know were a match. It’s broadened my horizons. It’s opened my eyes to so many amazing culinary opportunities.

For example, I wouldn’t have known that adding tarragon would make my Chard Wraps with Beef and Tarragon so delicious. Or, that beets, bacon, mache, oranges, apples, and pistachios would make a fabulous Mache and Citrus Salad. I would have missed out on all the amazing ways to use fennel pollen, a seasoning I’ve recently been introduced to. I wouldn’t have known that it goes well with fish, carrots, garlic, potatoes, and lemon, which would have meant no Mahi Mahi, Fennel, and Potato Chowder. And who can forget those little Red Cabbage and Apple Tarts that were made to be eaten with the Wowza Steak Salad?! I haven’t.

I’ve told you over and over again how much I love this book. I take photos of it when I use it. I’m so excited about how wonderful it is.

I just can’t help myself.

So, I want you to have one too.

Thanks to authors, Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page, I’m giving away one copy of The Flavor Bible!!
