A simple textbook for beer and wine,
This review is from: He Said Beer, She Said Wine: Impassioned Food Pairings to Debate and Enjoy -- From Burgers to Brie and Beyond (Hardcover)
The concept is interesting. The idea of debating which beverage pairs better with different types of food is neat. However, some of the food chemistry is blatantly incorrect. Someone please tell Marnie that all salts are not bases and table salt NaCl is neutral. The "witty repartee" tends to be more entertainment than informative. I do believe Calagione states his arguments better and with less attitude. BTW: In my house, "She" drinks beer.
