Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Hanna, who is president of her own Sonoma vineyard, describes her first book as "part practical cookbook, part inspirational entertaining guide." She generally succeeds with the former, providing a variety of decidedly West Coast dishes full of things from the garden. But she treads a fine line between inspirational guide and overly flowery autobiography with such comments as "We exult in the first bud break in the vineyard," and overuses descriptive passages that employ variations of the words lovely, wonderful, and beautiful. The book is divided by season, with five major meal plans provided for each. The Winter Dinner Party, for example, includes recipes for prosciutto-roasted fennel, cream of chanterelle soup, Syrah-braised lamb shanks, and chocolate bread pudding. For the summer, there is a pizza party with toppings that include wild nettle, smoked duck, and picholine olives. Along the way there are plenty of color photos, a useful wine glossary, and several "Ask the Winemaker" sidebars providing short answers to huge questions such as "How do I pair wine with food?" and "How do I store my wine?"

This is a cookbook for people who adore great food and wine. For people who love the Barefoot Contessa because the recipes are doable and always come out right. People who crave simply delicious natural food, many right off the vine or from the farmer's market. People who cherish a beautifully photographed cookbook with user-friendly presentation of recipes. And, those of us who love to learn more about the science of food and wine while browsing through a lovely book... THE WINEMAKER COOKS is perfect. Chris Hanna makes it all seem easy and every recipe is mouthwatering. I've tried a few and they more than deliver. Photos are great. Tips and wine pairings complete the package. I know there are a million recipes on-line, but for those of us who just love to browse a beautiful book and fold down the pages of all the recipes we will try, this is the best book to come along in a long time. My friends will enjoy their holiday present this year for years to come. Congrats to Chris Hanna and photographer Sheri Giblin.

The Winemakers Cooks, is a wonderful illustrated cook book with a lot of wine knowledge provided. The book is arranged by seasons, which provides a variety of recipes for anything from appetizers to dessert. I tried a full meal as soon as I got the book and found the recipes to be simple but used good ingredients the made the meals taste like gourmet meals at the best restaurants. They used a lot of fresh ingredients and some things that I had not tried before. I found that the meal went well with the recommended wines. I really enjoyed the first meal and am looking forward to the next meal.

Nice cookbook, her style is very relaxed and confident. I took my time reading thru the pages, and I'm looking forward to trying something from this soon. How many books hit the shelf and thats it..I'll be reaching for this one when I want to get inspired and have nothing specific in mind.
