EPISODE 62: NIKI SEGNIT: AUTHOR OF THE BEST SELLING FLAVOUR THESAURUS AND HER NEW BOOK LATERAL COOKING

My guest today is Niki Segnit.

Niki is the author of two books: the first being the Flavour Thesaurus which has sold more than 250,000 copies and has been translated into 14 languages which is just amazing. 

Her latest book is Lateral Cooking which I’m sure is going to follow in the foot steps of her first and it’s already received rave reviews.

Niki counts Heston Blumenthal, Nigel Slater and Ottolenghi as fans and according to an article I found online – Kate Winslet too.

The Sunday Times said of Niki’s first book:

“The Flavour Thesaurus is a deceptively simple little masterpiece, set to take its place by McGee on Food and Cooking as a household Bible.”

It really is that good: find Niki’s books here and here.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram for a while, you will definitely have heard me banging on about the Flavour Thesaurus – it’s such an amazing book and my copy is very well thumbed – and so I was giddy with excitement to meet Niki and talk all things flavour. Get ready to hear me being a proper fan girl!
