Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book, great information and is easy to read for anybody without all the fancy terms that you may not understand. But they do bring up fancy words and phrases and explain them too. Really good for the novice through intermediate wine drinker who just wants to pair everyday food with everyday different types of wine without the "snob factor" associated with many wine books.

I use this for a quick reference. So far, of the 3 choices for food pairings that I have made based on the books chapters, all three have worked out well. The latest was trying to pair Greek food with non-Greek based wines. Prior to that was looking for non-sake wine with Japanese food. And prior to that, I believe I got a good hint for spicy Chinese food. Pretty much already know what I like with steaks, fish, and fowl dishes so was looking for guidance on difficult pairings.
