Hi Jacob,
First, THANKS for doing this BRILLIANT work .. have researched a lot over the years & read many a chefs around the globe .. trust me when i say; many very good in their own ways,  none as good as you in terms of depth of knowledge, teaching complex with simplicity.. a mark of a true genius ... My salutes & sincere compliments .. do give me a shout if i can be of any service in my humble capacity ..
downloaded "The Secrets Of Flavour Structure" & would like to have all the volumes in the series .. please let me know the cost  
"Bliss Point" (salt, sugar & fat) .. how & from where can i get a formula to calculate "bliss point" for various preparations?

Where can i find food / ingredient pairing list

Hey FC,

Welcome to Stella Culinary, and I'm glad you're enjoying the F is for Flavor Bonus. I'm working on making the rest of the curriculum available, but it still needs some work. Since you're on our e-mail list, you'll be notified when it's released.

As far as calculating bliss point, I assume you're referring to the concept discussed in the book 'Salt Sugar Fat' by Michael Moss. I'm not sure how exactly food scientists calculate their bliss point, but from a cook's perspective, it's all about creating balanced and complex flavors.

In F is for Flavor, I talk about a "Flavor Punch." That's a good starting place to create a "bliss point."

For a food and ingredient pairing list, I highly recommend The Flavor Bible.

THANKS Jacob, appreciate your reply.
What a coincidence ... after a stint of working in Saudi Arabia, UAE / Middle East for over 3 decades, i have now arrived in Baguio City since Jan 2015, Philippines; which has been the home base for me for more than 2 decades being married to a fillippina, but only visited this beautiful place during yearly vacations .. and now as I arrived here for a prolonged stay to establish business base in Philippines too, i not only became interested in Stella, but further learn that Jacob is also married to a fillippina .. hence this coincidental affinity and the appreciation for your brilliant teahing style, compells me to humbly inquire if you could somehow be enticed in some way to partner with us for a restaurant launcnh in Baguio City .. which is my main reason for this prolonged stay here in the Philippines at the moment. OR, perhaps you may want to consider putting us in touch with some like minded people who might be interested in Philippines, followed by Kuala Lumpur and the rest of ASEAN region. In ase of interest, you may want to communicate further through to my email;
