I'm Steve. Product Manager / Digital Marketer / HOME COOK

Sharing learnings from my journey to become "fluent in flavor" and a more confident and creative home cook.

Sign up for my FlavorPantry newsletter and get more enjoyment from food and cooking.

Need more reasons to sign up? Well, whether cooking or dining - it is all about the Flavor.

FlavorPantry helps you to master that most fundamental component of eating and cooking. You'll learn to be more creative in the kitchen and educate your palate to get greater enjoyment from all your dining experiences.

Here is what you will find in the FlavorPantry Newsletter...

  • Flavor Pairings - there is a whole intriguing world to master out there ... cayenne pepper and salt on mango anyone or how about vanilla shrimp in a tarragon cream sauce or sauteed zucchini with cardamom?

  • The top food stories about Flavor curated for you from around the web

  • Flavor Resources including book reviews, articles, guides and infographics

  • References on spices, herbs, rubs, sauces, moles, injections, marinades, recados - you name it we will cover it...

  • Regional Flavor Combinations and why they work...

Every week we'll cover the topics above plus one or more of the following:

  • a Recipe,

  • an individual Spice or Herb

  • a specific ingredient - vegetable, fruit or protein

  • and a review of our favorite new Cookbook

- all from the point of view of advancing our understanding and enjoyment of food.

Last but not least EVERY week we'll hold a Giveaway. Mostly for Cookbooks but sometimes for bigger prizes too. You have to be subscribed to be notified to enter!! So sign up already!

So to boil it down, pun intended and at the risk of being repetitive, in addition to food and flavor news, we'll give you actionable, bite-sized steps to take you on a journey to flavor mastery!

Sound tasty?
