Overview

Wine and food are natural companions. A carefully chosen wine can increase the appreciation of the food it accompanies, and food that is cooked with a particular wine in mind will show off that wine at its best. This volume in the Williams-Sonoma Lifestyles series dedicates itself to the dynamics of pairing food and wine, with comprehensive, yet easy-to-follow, guidelines.

Food & Wine Pairing features 45 outstanding recipes specifically developed for serving with wine. Created by renowned chef and author Joyce Goldstein, each recipe includes helpful cooking tips and hints, a nutritional analysis, and a beautiful full-page, full-color photograph. In addition, master sommelier Evan Goldstein provides lively commentary on the specific wine suggestions that accompany every recipe. An instructive introduction explains the principles of pairing food and wine, including a discussion of six basic characteristics of wine and food, a guide to over 100 widely available types of wine, and indispensable instruction on serving and storing wine. Concluding the book is a detailed glossary of common wine terms.
