Top center: Seira WIlson, Amazon senior editor, who just released her list of “100 Books for a Lifetime of Eating & Drinking,” which includes THE FLAVOR BIBLE

“The idea was to come up with a list that would be inspirational, educational, have a lot of variety and be a lot of fun.  If you had one bookshelf of cookbooks for your whole life, I would want this to be the list.”
–Seira Wilson, senior editor, in explaining her rationale behind naming “Amazon’s 100 Books for a Lifetime of Eating and Drinking,” which features THE FLAVOR BIBLE
