Niki Segnit - Lateral Cooking: One Dish Leads to Another — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

To free herself from mechanically following recipes, Segnit wrote her award-winning The Flavor Thesaurus, which laid out the 160 most essential flavors of foods. Her follow-up draws on culinary science, history, stories from professional kitchens, food writers, and her own experience to catalog the formulas underlying most recipes. Divided into twelve basic culinary categories such as bread, sauce, and stock, the book arranges the recipes for each chapter along a continuum that allows cooks to proceed in an intuitive way, moving from one dish to the next with just the tweak of a few ingredients or methods. Endlessly adaptable, these rubrics will inspire improvisation and resourcefulness.
