This book is filled with variations of spreads.It is one of the books on cooking that I requested via NetGalley. It does not halt with just the basic combinations but proceeds to identify possible oils and vinaigrettes that can be created with herbs.
It even contains recipes with ideas on what to do with those combinations that we can create from those pages. There are very soothing pictures interspersed between various suggestions. Garlic plays a vital role in the first half of the book, and there seem to be very few recipes without it playing a vital role. This is a book that would look great on the bookshelf. At the same time, it generates a few ideas on how to play with certain flavours.
