Do you keep a running list of restaurants you go to for your favorite flavorbombs--like a vibrant, pungent Caesar salad, extra crispy garlic fries, or a spicy puttanesca pasta? When you try to reproduce the same flavors at home, do you find yourself falling short? If this sounds familiar, this evening is for you. You'll discover that Food Network host and cookbook author Bob Blumer cooks with the same ingredients as you do, but he harnesses them in ways that build compounding layers of flavors and textures, and he finishes every dish with a final flourish. His practical, confidence-building approach will help you up your game—and make anything you cook taste better.

Praise for Flavorbomb
"Bob Blumer was the first TV chef that I really identified with—I wouldn't be doing what I do now if he hadn't ridden around in an Airstream making food exciting—and I can't believe I can call him a friend. Nothing Bob creates is mundane or lacluster; he is a human love bomb and with Flavourbomb you can see into his world and make his creative, beautiful food! This book is the guide we all need now more than ever! You're truly lucky he's so giving."
