For those that are intrigued by neurogastronomy and how our senses play an important role in our culinary enjoyment, Cooking for the Senses is the book for you. Jennifer Peace Rhind brings her considerable background with olfaction and sensory perception to life in this beautiful and captivating book. Sprinkled with her own experiences, her chapters on understanding flavors, ingredients and food preparation are enlightening and a delight to read. The Recipe Collection section of the book, by Gregor Law, presents over one hundred delectable vegan recipes sprinkled extensively with exquisite mouth-watering color photography.

Although Cooking for the Senses focuses upon vegan culinary creations, this is also an incredible book for those that focus upon eating a plant-based diet but do also consume meat and other animal products.

Cooking for the Senses also makes a beautiful and thoughtful gift for the foodies and vegans in your life. Before I even finished reading Cooking for the Senses, I had already ordered my daughter her own copy of the book.

From the Back Cover

'An invaluable book for anyone following a plant-based diet.'
- Ching He Huang, TV chef and cookery author

'Cooking for the Senses bridges the gap between the science of flavor perception and the art of cooking.'
- Bob Holmes, author of 'Flavor: The Science of Our Most Neglected Sense'

'A fascinating account of nearly every kind of vegetable and fruit and its role in world cuisines, plus many recipes for preparing them.'
- Professor Gordon Shepherd, author of 'Neurogastronomy: How the Brain Creates Flavor and Why It Matters'

An alternative way of looking at food, Cooking for the Senses explains how understanding the senses can be the key to making tasty, healthy food in your own kitchen. With over 100 delicious vegan recipes - from sweet and citrusy carrot and lime leaf kebabs, to a warming butternut squash and spinach curry - and a practical flavour guide, this first book on neurogastronomy for the home cook is bursting with flavour.

Jennifer Peace Rhind and Gregor Law together have expertise in scent education, recipe creation, biology, health and wellbeing. Their passion for aroma, flavour and food has culminated in this book.

Description From the Publisher's Web Site:

How do we perceive flavour? How can understanding the senses help us to make better tasting meals?

Wake up to creamy avocado with fragrant orange pepper seasoning and green Tabasco dressing, snack on sweet and citrusy carrot and lime leaf kebabs and curl up with a warming bowl of butternut squash and spinach curry. An alternative way of looking at food, Cooking for the Senses introduces neurogastronomy and explains how understanding smell, taste and our other senses can be the key to making tasty, healthy food in your own kitchen. The authors explain the science of flavour and provide guidance on how to train your palate and be more mindful in the kitchen. This cookbook will inspire you with a practical flavour guide to a wide range of plant ingredients, and over 100 delicious vegan recipes for everyone that reflect neurogastronomy in action.

Seasoned with tales of the authors' own culinary experiences, this first book on neurogastronomy for the home cook is bursting with flavour.
