Culinary Artistry

What ingredients complement duck? When are sunchokes in season?

Who the hell knows the answer to these questions?

I'm sure the seasoned chef could confidently answer them, however, the home chef might not have these tidbits of knowledge committed to memory.

Thankfully, you don't have to. Culinary Artistry to the rescue.

One of my favorite culinary books, this gem is NOT a cookbook. This is a source of cooking muse; inspiring cooks of all levels to deeply think about the artistry behind cooking. It also provides a roadmap of flavor pairings, ingredient seasonality, and much more.
