BOOK REVIEW: Taste, The Infographic Book of Food, Laura Rowe



It's graphic, it's foodie...you could say Taste, The Infographic Book of Food, was positively written for this blog.

This book is gorgeous, page after page of quality graphic richness and I absolutely adore the illustration style and colours.


But as well as being a true visual feast, the book is full of food facts, tips and trivia that anyone with an interest in the subject would appreciate. How to make a soughdough starter, the history of the New York bagel, ice cream from around the world, how to make sushi correctly, global Christmas food traditions, tea varieties, edible insects to try before you die and the acceptable ratio of filling in a Russian Chiburekki pasty....it's all there.



I would say it's a book to dip in and out of as subject matter is varied and concise, but is well put together and interesting unlike the majority of similar books that just collect dust on the shelf.

My only criticism is that I would have liked to have seen the lead illustrator, Vicki Turner, credited on the cover for largely making this book. Up the creatives!



Taste is highly recommended by me, I think most people interested in food would like it and would definitely make a lovely Christmas gift for the food obsessive in your life .

Taste, The Infographic Book of Food is published by Aurum Press and costs £20.
