Learn to approach tasting the way that professional tasters do. Using examples and insights from sommeliers, chefs, cheese affineurs, coffee roasters, and many others, How to Taste teaches you the fine details and methodology of understanding the subtlest differences.
Mandy Naglich, herself a certified advanced cicerone or beer taster, begins your journey toward serious flavor appreciation by addressing the science behind flavor perception, from its association with odor to variations in the biology of individuals to the influence of factors such as color and ambient sound on the tasting experience.
From there you’re off on a self-guided journey of discovery, taking advantage stories and exercises which Naglich shares to help you develop a set of flavor reference points and vocabulary which you can use along the way.
Naglich’s friendly approach takes your ambition to be a more knowledgeable taster seriously and sets you up to continue learning long past the time you have finished reading her book.
