The New York Times not too long ago listed their best cookbooks for 2020 and “The Flavor Equation” by Nik Sharma was highlighted.

Sharma in this reserve has the formidable goal of conveying the science of cooking moreover creating it understandable for folks like us. Sharma grew up in Mumbai, India, and his love for cooking began in his parents’ kitchen. He began cooking out of necessity and curiosity and obtained bored feeding on the similar food stuff all over again and yet again. He delved into cookbooks and recipe cuttings from journals and newspapers. It was in his university chemistry class where he to start with found out how foodstuff and science were being interconnected. He writes that when he arrived to America he found that “recipes right here utilized elements that complemented and improved the flavors of crucial elements of the dish, rather in contrast to the technique seen in kitchens of India, which emphasised the use of contrasting components.”
