Testimonials

“Bruce Oliver takes us on an olfactory tour of the world, where we not only learn about the herbs and spices we all use on a daily basis but also tantalizes us with recipes and wine pairings from some of the world’s best hotels and their talented chefs. Unique, intriguing and a treat for all the senses, his Scent-Sational Travels: A Scratch and Sniff Experience is a one of a kind interactive book that makes you feel like you’re in the thick of all things travel and food!” ~Michael Cervin, Forbes Travel Guides

“Bruce Oliver’s use of a directive of how to use this book is concise and so well laid out. I love his use of movie correlations. Brilliant Spice usage tables. This is one of the best layouts explaining where to use spices. The ethnic foods table was a surprise and my first thought was I can definitely use it every day; just perfect.

The use and history of the herbs gave me a better understanding of each. I especially appreciate the history. Well done on this. The Salt section is one of my favorites. I never realized the level of differences.

I was amazed at all the recipes from an eclectic level of places from around the world. Only Bruce Oliver could have brought this together with one of the most beautiful pictorial presentations. He made me feel like I was there.

This is one of the most comprehensive and well laid out reference guides I have ever seen. Bruce Oliver has created a masterpiece of information that appeals to all our senses. This book is the standard for the food and travel industry.  Simply Genius.  Congratulations.” Tony Pace, Vegas Headliner and Recording Artist

“What a novel idea: ‘scratch and sniff travel and food’. We loved learning how executive chefs use spices, herbs and salts while they cook. The historical information, tidbits and quotes also makes the book an interesting read. It’s a great resource for travelers and non-travelers alike; you can smell the ingredients before you use them. We plan to keep the book in our kitchen as a resource while cooking new and old dishes.”  James and Sandy Minneo, Entrepreneurs
