Have you ever had a crush on a book? Don't laugh but I have a crush on this book. It is gorgeous, smart, well-written, and has spectacular pictures. See? Crush!!

Jill Hough, in her follow up to "100 perfect pairings: Small plates to enjoy with the wines you love" has written a well-thoughtout book "100 perfect pairings: Main dishes to enjoy with wines you love."

So I have to admit that usually when books show up that have a wine element, I am very hesitant to open them. I don't know a lot about wine and many books make me feel like I know even less! But Jill's book did not intimidate me, in fact, the friendly nature of the writing made me want to read more.

Now, the dishes.. really are wonderful.

Her tilapia with gazpacho has become a big hit with my family! The skillet roasted chicken breast with lavender was another hit in our house!

I look forward to cooking more from her book.

Simplicity of recipes with good ingredients. I like that the wines are posted first. No need to search for pairings. It's done for you. For anyone who likes good wine and enjoys cooking, this is a good book. I received this book as a birthday gift, and quickly ordered two more for gifts to family members who enjoy good wine and cooking.

100 Perfect Pairings: Main Dishes to Enjoy with Wines You Love is the second in what I hope is a series of books from author, chef and foodie Jill Silverman Hough. While I enjoyed the first Perfect Pairings: Small Plates; Main Dishes is a great follow-on book that is already showing grease spots and wine stains from frequent use. Layed out in easy to use format by wine varietal with a brief section on that specfic grape's broad characteristics, fine-tuning tips and nuances to make pairing with that variety a breeze. Each grape variety has an array of recipes that make you hungry and thirsty as you cruise each chapter and enjoy the stunning photography. Don't overlook the nifty "Food + Wine Tip" included with most recipes. For the novice or seasoned wino, this is a fun book with lots of useful tips and killer recipes...order both books, you won't be disapointed.

I took a class from Jill and immediately ordered these two books.....I think I was still in the class when ordering it on line. They are great recipes, easy to prepare, and leave you time to enjoy your guests! What else could you ask for! Try them!

This cookbook is perfect for anyone looking to make an impressive recipe from simple ingredients and tasks. I highly recommend it if you are looking to learn more about pairing each meal with wine. As a novice in the kitchen, this cookbook has really made me look entirely too good. The pairings are absolutely dead on and every recipe is delicious down to the last savory bite. I have cooked about half of the recipes from the book and have been impressed with them all-- it has made planning meals for the week so much fun! I recommend the Fish Burgers with Mint and Napa Cabbage Slaw, Curried Chicken and Avocado Salad, Lamb Burgers with Feta Sauce, Chicken Cocoa Vin, Merlot Braised Lamb Shanks and Gorgonzola Polenta... you really could not go wrong with any recipe from this book! I also highly recommend the 100 Perfect Pairings: Small Bites!

We had the pleasure of attending one of Jill's cooking classes while on vacation in Sonoma wine country. She was an engaging host, with such solid advice about wine and food pairing that any prior intimidation disappeared.

All recipes we've prepared from this cookbook have come out flawlessly. The food is very flavorful without any fussy preparation. Using this cookbook has helped my wife build confidence in her cooking skills, resulting in several lovely meals spent together. We've been able to enjoy the variety of wines from our cellar with perfectly paired dishes thanks to the straightforward information given in each chapter. On a very practical level, the book is attractive and a perfect size for carrying to the store when buying ingredients.

Thanks Chef for creating such a terrific cookbook!
