Edna Lewis, In Pursuit of Flavor, 1988: This is a mint condition, just-as-if-you-took-it-off-the-shelf-at-Barnes-and-Noble, first edition copy of Edna Lewis’s 1988 masterpiece. First edition, first printing. Both book and dust jacket in perfect condition. Published by Alfred A. Knopf, New York, in 1988. Hard cover. 323 pages. Lewis’s title is right on target: she searches for the most flavor in every dish and with every ingredient. For example, did you know that the collar bone of the cod fish will produce the most flavor when you are making a broth? That the fall crop of raspberries is more flavorful than the early summer crop? That single action baking powder has no bitter aftertaste, but that store-bought double action baking powder does? Lewis gives you the recipe for the superior baking powder.
