Salt fat acid heat book.jpeg

One day I was ENRAGED by having to rotate the flavour wheels and flipping pages back and forth, in:
salt fat acid heat.

So I chopped up the wheel,
to make it easier to read

and it still kinda sucked.

So I decided to go one* step further

I combined the seasoning advice,
into one,
handy spreadsheet.

That will make you EAT your hat, and if you follow the seasoning advice, it will be the TASTIEST goddamn hat you've eaten in your ENTIRE life.

Now you can easily see which combinations of:

Fats/Oils, Acids, Spices, Seasoning, and Garnishes
go well together, from which country's cuisine.

Now before you click on the chart,

read on to learn how to interpret it,
because it loo
ks complicated

but it's actually easy.

First glance, scroll past.

Top across, you have the  Country/Cuisine 

Then  Acids 

Then  Fats 

Then  Heat 
(Spices & Seasoning)

We can see the  UK flavour profile  uses either Beer, Cider, or Wine
for acid. Very Boozy Brits!
(Meaning Vinegar, Lemon, Lime & Orange won't work in the UK profile.)
The UK & France both use  Olive Oil. 
 Neutral  means Seed Oils.
(i.e. Rapeseed, Vegetable, Sunflower)
We can see the  UK  uses  Ginger,   Mint,  and  Curry Powder. 
 France  uses  Basil  and  Fennel Seeds 

Then  Garnishes 

We can see the UK uses  Ketchup, Mustard, and Brown Sauce. 

France uses Tomatoes and Olives. 

The Garnishes really bring all the flavours together.
(If a spice is in a Black Font, like Herbs De Province
it means it ONLY appears in that cuisine)
The three most common Garnishes to use are:
 Tomatoes,   Pickles,  and   Olives  by the way.

if you are shopping, they will give you the most options back in the kitchen.

I would recommend printing out the sheet/s in A3 at your local library.

Having them easily accessible in the kitchen
has made me a
much better cook.

For years, I used to consider cooking and eating, to be a CHORE

before I learned how to season

Honestly, I thought it was a quirk of my personality,

nope, turns out I just couldn't cook!

See this brilliant news story about China's response to 'white-people food'.

And this Chef explains why white people don't season their food.
With gorgeous Ai Art.


Read on to learn about the BONUS charts.

There are multiple ways
to organize the information.

 The Oils & Acids Chart 
Helps you quickly decide what cuisine to choose​ based on what Oils and Acids you have available.

 The MASTER chart 
helps you work out what cuisines you can cook, based on your current stock, and what you could buy, to expand your options.

Simply find the spice you have, and follow it along horizontally, to see which cuisines it works in.

The spices are listed in order of how many cuisines they are used in.
Want to expand your options?

Buy a spice that works in more cuisines. e.g.

Cumin is used in 7.

Ginger is used in 13.
