The Vegetarian Flavor Bible is the latest tome by Karen Page and it’s rather awe-inspiring, as you can see from the above description. Karen holds a certificate in Plant-based Nutrition from Cornell (T. Colin Campbell’s program) and has twice received a James Bear Award for other books; plus she was the wine columnist for The Washington Post. Oh, and by the way, her husband, Andrew Dornenburg, another author, took the photos that grace the book.

    Too many faves to list–so many more to discover! This book promises as much passion, suspense, and delight as any novel I plan to read!

    My favorite food pairing is rosemary, sage, oregano and basil. I’ll use any combination of the four herbs and the results are fabulous. I want to learn more about combining savory, sweet flavors, sour and savory and salty sweet flavors. Thanks for offering the giveaway!

    One of my favorite flavor combos, at least when it comes to spices, is paprika and oregano. It goes really well with tons of different things.
