Hi all - I have a question about these two cook-books / pairing guides written by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg. I have just received 'The Flavor Bible' as a gift. My question is: should I buy 'Culinary Artistry' as well? Are there different food pairings in Culinary Artistry? I ask because The Flavor Bible seems pretty comprehensive to me. Will I be missing out without Culinary Artistry? Thanks!
I'm thinking of doing a blog of recipes found in very old public domain cookbooks. I will likely register a domain name. Can you help me come up with a good domain name/blog name? [more inside]

MisterBen needs recommendations for a very specific kind of Indian cookbook – one that’s organized by technique, not by course or ingredient. Imagine if Alton Brown or Mark Bittman wrote an Indian cookbook. The idea is to learn reusable techniques and general concepts of what flavors are used together. What he already has: Madhur Jaffrey’s classics, Raghavan Iyer’s “660 Curries”, and Vikas Khanna’s “Flavor First”, which are used as bibles. Almost all Indian ingredients can be found in our area, and he is comfortable at making his own masalas, so feel free to recommend books you might think of as advanced.
