We are thrilled to be hosting an exclusive book signing with celebrity chef James Briscione on Saturday, April 14 from 12 noon to 2 p.m.
Our event will give our customers a chance snack on Bisconie’s delicious treats and to snag the new book The Flavor Matrix: The Art and Science of Pairing Common Ingredients to Create Extraordinary Dishes, a groundbreaking guide for turning unheard-of flavor combinations, such as strawberry–mushroom, tomato–coconut and avocado–cocoa, into astonishingly inventive dishes.
James Briscione wrote The Flavor Matrix with wife, Brooke Parkhurst. Both are well-known Pensacola natives who later this year will open Angelena’s, a new downtown restaurant at 101 East Intendencia Street. James is the first two-time champion of Food Network’s Chopped and serves as Director of Culinary Development at the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) in New York City. In addition to serving as a host and judge on Food Network, James regularly appears on The Dr. Oz Show, TODAY Show and Fox & Friends. For several years, James collaborated with IBM supercomputer Watson to discover flavor combinations based on different foods’ chemical compatibility. That experience launched Briscione on a quest to document the connections between ingredients of all sorts—a journey that ultimately led to The Flavor Matrix.
In The Flavor Matrix, Briscione takes 150 common ingredients and shows the science behind flavor pairings, both common and mind-bending. The resulting guide is easy to understand and use and designed to help anyone push the envelope in the kitchen. Highlights include a flavor pairing guide with 60 simple, full-color charts and infographics and 60 innovative, original recipes, including Black Tea Tomato Sauce; Sweet Pea, Pork and Coconut Tacos; and Porcini, Hazelnut, and Chocolate Torte.
Call 850-438-7857 to reserve your copy of The Flavor Matrix today and on April 14, head to The Bodacious Olive at 407 South Palafox Street for what promises to be a fun and flavorful event.
