Bob Blumer Flavorbomb

You keep a running list of restaurants you go to for your favourite flavourbombs—a vibrant, pungent Caesar salad, extra crispy garlic fries, or a spicy puttanesca pasta maybe. You might even be able to articulate exactly what it is about those dishes that you find so addictive. But when you try to reproduce the same flavours at home, you find yourself falling short. If any of the above sounds familiar, this book is for you.

For the past 25 years, Bob Blumer has eaten his way around the globe, travelling millions of miles in search of culinary adventures and inspiring foods for three TV series and six cookbooks. Along the way, he’s broken eight food-related Guinness World Records, competed in some of the most outrageous food competitions on the planet, cooked alongside countless amazing chefs, and sampled every local street food imaginable at ramshackle carts, hawker stalls, and night markets from Italy to India.

These collective experiences have formed the backbone of Bob’s cooking in ways that culinary school can’t begin to teach. In Flavorbomb he channels everything he has gleaned into recipes and practical tips to help you create bold, stimulating flavours, that will leave those you cook for in a state of bliss. Prepare to become a rock star in your own kitchen.
