I have NO idea why my subheader on this book claims I'm re reading I'm clearly not it's a brand new book got it straight from the library as it came outOK I guess it does deserve some sense of a reviewFirst of all format for non fic books each new research idea intro goes like this Brand new research idea JohnJane Doe is the current top of the field in this area and they kindly talked to me John Doe is tallshort baldingspiked hair strong blah blah blah Jane Does is tallshort longgreycurly hair vivacious intense Whatever The point is that every single scientist is DESCRIBED WTF I'd be interested in an abbreviated scientific bio than I am in a physical description And I'm mentioning it about Holmes but they ALL do it By THEY I mean the plethora of science authors some good some bad But really WTF people Does it really tell me anything that Jane Doe is a tall thin woman with long greying hair or that blond haired blue eyed John Doe was clearly a linebacker in college vs the fact that Jane Doe came to Subject of book science after an internship while she was an undergrad studying biophysics or that John Doe decided to go into sports medicine after he tore his ACL AnyhowFlavorIt was an ok book Same format as many pop science books and neither the best nor the worse Not funny like Mary Roach not thorough as Rebecca Skloot but a decent book worth a read He touched on the science of course touched on the Big Flavor companies It felt like too broad a subject and thus very shallow His science parts were ok but over too fast his food stuff was interesting but non inspired I guess it didn't feel like there was a thread being followed through the book

Honestly this was a four star book with annoying bits First the good stuff I enjoyed this roundup of flavor science and I especially enjoyed the tips on how to try things yourself how to improve your own sense of taste and smell how to think about food and flavor I liked the popular roundup approach to a really fascinating emerging field of food science I did not so much enjoy the fatphobia There’s a lot of OH NO THE DEATH FATS CAN FLAVOR SAVE US that I very much was not here for I also — there’s a place in the book where he compares flavor recognition to facial recognition and notes that everyone can do the latter except some rare tragic medical case It’s odd to be described that way by a book I’m reading a clear reminder that I was not a part of Holmes’s expected audience He also describes masochists as “the oddest among us” which suggests to me that maybe he needs to broaden horizons other than his sense of flavorBut overall an interesting read I just wish he’d been a little thoughtful about the parts where he insulted portions of his audience
