Anyone who has read and cooked from Nik Sharma’s first book, Season, knows that flavour — how to play with it, what subtle twists and variation of ingredients can enhance and develop it — is very much his specialist subject, but his follow-up, The Flavor Equation: The Science of Great Cooking Explained + More Than 100 Essential Recipes, is a masterwork on the subject. He marries his background as a scientist with his life as a food writer and brings alive the chemistry and poetry behind cooking. It is an extraordinary achievement, and a blessing for cooks everywhere. It’s the sort of book to cook from with excitement and a glad heart, and one you will want to read and reread; it seems to expand with each revisit. There is not one recipe I don’t want to share with you, but with Thanksgiving coming up, it seemed only right to bring you his Sweet Potato Honey Beer Pie.
