The human tongue and palate kw only five tastes; our se complements this rather limited sense. Much of what we think we taste is actually derived from our sense of smell! Because the se and mouth are connected, taste and smell work hand-in-hand to complete our eating experiences; incorporating scent, in the form of essential oils, is a logical way to optimise our meals without adding additional chemicals and fillers to our food. The recipes in this book focus on using fresh, local (if possible) ingredients and scented essential oils to urish your loved ones in a healthy and varied way. Included are the basics of essential oils, including recipes for creating your own spiced oils, vinegars, butters, salts, syrups, honey, and sugars. Easy-to-follow recipes for warm and cold appetisers, soups, main and side dishes, desserts, and drinks and cocktails will have you cooking with essential oils in time! A tips and tricks section helps to eliminate any guesswork on the part of the home cook, and the authors include menu examples by occasion.
