The Missing Ingredient: The Curious Role of Time in Food and Flavour

Jenny Linford

We're very excited by Jenny Linford's new book The Missing Ingredient: The Curious Role of Time in Food and Flavour and delighted to be able to publish an extract from the Hours chapter, in which Jenny talks to Hodmedod co-founder Nick Saltmarsh and considers the history of the British relationship with pulses.

Written through a series of encounters with ingredients, producers, cooks, shopkeepers and chefs, exploring everything from the brief period in which sugar caramelises, or the days required in the crucial process of fermentation, to the months of slow ripening and close attention that make a great cheddar, or the years needed for certain wines to reach their peak, Jenny Linford shows how, time and again, time itself is the invisible ingredient. From the patience and dedication of many food producers in fields and storehouses around the world to the rapid reactions required of any home cook at the hob, this book allows us to better understand our culinary lives.
