THE BASICS OF FLAVOUR-MAKING:
Replicating a flavour is something of an art form. Our friends the flavourists would say that a flavour has three key components:
A character item, which makes a large contribution to the flavour as it smells or tastes of the required flavour. A contributory item, which enhances the main flavour even if, on its own, it doesn’t actually have the flavour we’re after. A differential item, which is not essential but can add some character reminiscent of the target flavour.
