Cook up Something Delicious with Flavorbomb by Bob Blumer

Like every other adult, I have many cookbooks. Every book has a recipe or two that I love making but they mostly collect dust.

Just before the holidays, I received a new cookbook called Flavorbomb. I sat down and looked at every single page in the book. I could tell instantly that this was not your ordinary cookbook. It included tips I had never heard of and recipes that this (anxious) home chef can make.

Taste, Technique, Trust

This section of the book teaches you everything you need to know about adding flavor to your meals, using the right gear to cook great meals and to trust your abilities in the kitchen.

Bob Blumer discusses saltiness, sweetness, heat, and more.  You’ll get lots of hacks, tips and even checklists in this section.

I really appreciated the shopping tips (like how to select good bacon – soooo important), the descriptions of how to care and what kitchen gadgets we all need, and got the boost of confidence all home chefs need in this section.

Nibbles, Main Courses, and More

The second section of the book is where you’ll find some fabulous recipes.

My mouth watered the first time I looked at all the recipes featured in this book.

The Flavorbombs you’ll find: 

  • Nibbles: unique bites but totally do-able
  • Soups and Salads: yes to Classic French Onion Soup and Raw Veggie Slaw
  • Mains: over 20 recipes including – my favourite – burgers!!
  • Vegetable Sides: winning Sweet Potato Floss
  • Dessert: yes to Pancake Beignets
  • Breakfast and Brunch: start with Waffle Latke
  • Sauces, Condiments and more: tasty Piri Piri sauce and must-make Three-Clove Aioli

This cookbook is exciting. I feel empowered to make so many recipes from this book. I also think my kids would eat most of them (a big bonus). If you want to make everything taste better, this is the book for you.

Stay tuned as I share my cooking adventures using Flavorbomb.

  1. I’m not at all a confident home chef, but I’m willing to mix it up now and then. I love new flavors and recipes, just not necessarily making them myself. Haha.

  2. I am a confident cook and I think it’s because I love trying new things. I like to use spices and new techniques and love looking for new recipes to try.

  3. I love good food, I like to cook, but my wife loves it far more! this would be a nice addition to her collection.

  4. I love food. So I enjoy cooking. I am always open to new recipes to try. My family enjoys my cooking so that is where my confidence comes from.

  5. I love to cook and try new recipes. I am anxious if cooking for a special occasion and this book sounds amazing.

  6. I would say I’m leaning a little toward the confident side. Always willing to try new things and love to cook and experiment with recipes (not always for the best) Could really use some helpful tips and tricks to bring my cooking to the confident level!

  7. I am pretty confident in the kitchen!! i have loved Bob Blumer for a long long time now!! this would be so cool!!

  8. I am a reluctant home chef. I know how to follow a recipe but sometimes am reluctant to try new ones. I want to make sure it turns out or else no one on the family will eat it.

  9. A confident home chef. Willing to try most things and can laugh off failures. Luckily my family is adventurous too!

  10. i am willing to try anything once i cook with my eyes close and a can a soup can become a gourmet meal baking im scared i can not bake

  11. If only the 2 options, I would choose an anxious home chef. I am more timid to try new things as my kids often don’t enjoy things with too much sauce or flavour.

  12. I would say I’m somewhere smack in the middle! Hesitant with some techniques and ingredients (always nervous cooking steak or making omelettes!) and confident in others! Thanks for the chance at this awesome giveaway!

  13. I am not too confident but luckily my husband is and also adventurous so we like to create foods from around the world. Very much love experimenting with herbs and spices and finding new family favourites.

  14. I’m a little in-between. I’m definitely more confident then before covid, and have been trying new recipes on a regular basis lately. I made moussaka for the first time a few days ago, and didn’t feel intimidated by all of the steps and now I can’t wait to make it again (b/c it didn’t last very long).
