An Introduction to Flavor Structure - Something Every Cook Should Understand

Hey there ... real quick before you hit play ...

The video above was shot live at last year's culinary boot camp; it is the first minute of the first day, and I'm introducing the principals of flavor.

I thought y'all would enjoy this video since the response to the Flavor section of the F-STEP curriculum has been overwhelming. The day I sent The Secrets of Flavor Structure e-mail out, I had 300+ responses in my in box before I even got to work.

Two weeks later and I'm still getting replies from community members telling me how their new-found understanding of flavor structure is already enhancing the food they cook on a day to day basis. And please, keep those e-mails coming.

Another reason you'll like this video is it lets you in on a little bit of my history; why I went to culinary school, why I've always advocated for techniques over recipes, and how this led to the creation of the F-STEP curriculum. In this video I briefly introduce the "F-STEP Equation," and how this can be leveraged to make any dish you could ever dream up.

Please pay special attention to the F-STEP formula (Flavor + Technique) X Execution = ?, and what it's implications truly are.

It's important that you understand the concepts laid out in this PDF, because in my next video series, we will talk about how you can take your understanding of flavor structure, paint it over the three base sauce making techniques (something I refer to as the Three Modern Mother Sauces), and use it to create any sauce you could ever dream up.
