The Flavour Thesaurus
We offer a wide range of delivery options including UK Standard, Royal Mail First Class Signed For, European and International. All prices are weight based and include a small handling fee.
Unless an item is unavailable/ out of stock, all items are dispatched within 48 hours and we aim to deliver UK standard delivery orders within 3-5 working days. Weekends and UK Bank Holidays are not considered working days. Due to working with small companies and producers, and increases in seasonal demand, there may be times when longer delivery times occur. To avoid disappointment, we will inform you, the customer, of any such situation within 24 hours of an order being placed.
UK STANDARD: We use second class Royal Mail parcel service without tracking. Please allow 3 - 5 working days for your order to arrive once it has been dispatched. If you wish to have your item tracked, please use our Next Day service.
UK FIRST CLASS SIGNED FOR: Your item will be sent using Royal Mail tracked service and will be due to arrive one working day after dispatch. This is not 100% guaranteed. We aim to get items out on the same day of purchase, however, if your order is placed after 2pm, it won't be dispatched until the next day.
FREE SHIPPING: We offer free UK shipping on all orders over £100. This offer only applies to items order through our online store and does not apply to large framed items. If you which to purchase a print with framing, please contact our customer services.
Items will be dispatched to the shipping address that you supply when placing an order.
All tracked / recorded deliveries require a signature on accepting: If you or someone on your behalf is not able to sign for the delivery, the carrier will leave a card to arrange a re-delivery at a suitable time. Cards can only be left where there is access to secure post boxes, therefore some shared accommodation and apartment buildings will not receive delivery cards as a matter of security.
We are unable to redirect orders once they have been dispatched. If delivery proves impossible or impractical on 2 or more occasions we may need to cancel your order and deduct the original delivery charges from the refund; however we will try to contact you in this case to arrange for a new order to be placed if required.
Not only a highly useful, and covetable, reference book for cooking. The Flavour Thesaurus, written by Niki Segnit, may well keep you up at night reading. Ever wondered why one flavour works with another? Or lacked inspiration for what to do with a bundle of beetroot? The Flavour Thesaurus is the first book to examine what goes with what, pair by pair.
- Hardcover, 400 pages
- Size: 142 mm x 223 mm
The book is divided into flavour themes including Meaty, Cheesy, Woodland and Floral Fruity. Within these sections it follows the form of Roget’s Thesaurus, listing 99 popular ingredients alphabetically, and for each one suggesting flavour matchings that range from the classic to the bizarre.
You can expect to find traditional pairings such as pork & apple, lamb & apricot, and cucumber & dill; contemporary favourites like chocolate & chilli, and goat’s cheese & beetroot; and interesting but unlikely-sounding couples including black pudding & chocolate, lemon & beef, blueberry & mushroom, and watermelon & oyster. There are nearly a thousand entries in all, with 200 recipes and suggestions embedded in the text.
