Jennifer McLagan returns with her new book on one of our least understood flavours. Sparked from memories of eating white grapefruit as a child, this guide has developed into an intricate exploration into the bitter taste experience.

The world of the unused and under-loved ingredient is Jennifer s speciality, and with Bitter she opens up her readers imaginations to the most misunderstood of foods. Her book will not only help you to discover the delights of the radicchio or the dandelion, but show how you can use them to enhance the much sweeter palate we ve come to depend upon.

Bitter takes you on a journey through the broad range of the bitter scale, from the subtle to the very bitter as well as a few ingredients that will surprise you. Accompanied with various titbits on the history and science behind these flavours, Jennifer s book brings you an astounding array of beautiful recipes that will entice even the most sweet-toothed to give them a try.
