Aroma: The Magic of Essential Oils in Food & Fragrance

While many cookbooks include some information about the use of aromatics in cooking, none concentrates on this essential link, where a few drops of a fragrant essence can make commonplace dishes memorable and good dishes great. Both the food recipes and the fragrance recipes are powerfully alluring, whether it's an orange flower custard, a cucumber mist, or a rose-infused sea bass. Explicit information on ingredients, equipment, and terms and techniques complements one fragrance recipe and three food recipes for each of nearly thirty ingredients--lime, mint, green tea, black pepper, vanilla, ginger, and more. This seminal work will open the senses to the aromatic dimension of food and fragrance.
