I have always heard about wine/food pairings and thought that concept was developed by the hoity-toity. This book explains in english the reasons for the pairings that make sense. The point is to enhance the flavors of both the food and wine. Now I understand. I like that the author encourages everyone to experiment pairings of different foods and wines, rather than just sticking to the conventional wisdom.
This book also explains red vs white wines and rose', the various types of wines, sweetness/dry, tannins, acidity, alcohol content and body. Now I understand how complicated choosing a wine can be.
This book also explains the process to taste wine to experience the full flavors and what differentiates some cheap wines from more expensive wines.
I liked that the book discusses that it all comes down to finding the wines you enjoy that enhance and are enhanced by the food you eat.
This is a wonderful down-to-earth explanation of wines and is a great book to have on hand.
* This ebook should really be called a crafty and engaging database of wine perspective, respect, and passion.
* It taught me more during my first read, then I would have absorbed through the grapevine over a decade's worth of time.
* The author doesn't miss a single beat, and lays out everything one needs to know to enjoy wine and its delicious complexities in a user friendly way.
This includes the inherent complimentary natures it possesses in terms of cooking, dining out, and personal satisfaction.
My favorite part is the no-nonsense style. It's polished, and as refined as an aged Sicilian Nero d'Avola. The formatting is great, and I never have to worry about buying any other study material, this ebook is a one stop shop!
If the above sounds like you -- you will have to try this book. Without looking down their nose (too much) the author manages to give an excellent description of wines and food pairing, types of wine and grapes, etc. In short, all you need to know to buy a better bottle the next time you are at the wine store.
A bundle of info on wines, of course their territory and great suggestions on food pairings. I would have rated this as a 5 star, but found the organization of the book content to be unclear. You have to reread it if you are searching as reaching a specific tidbit of info...or a good search engine. Also found verbatim info redundancies to reread thru.
