Overview

This cookbook celebrates the Northwest's red-hot wine scene by pairing vintages from local winemakers with their favorite small plate dishes. The Pacific Northwest is a region that's become increasingly known not only for its breathtaking scenery, but also for its maverick winemakers and award-winning wines. Each spring, summer, and fall, wine lovers flock to the region to sip world-class wines. Swirl, Sip and Savor includes small plate recipes from 100 wineries in Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Each recipe has been selected by a regional winery (winemaker and/or chef) and accompanies a suggested wine pairing from their vineyards. Recipes range from simple starters and finger foods to more sophisticated small plates. With beautiful color photographs throughout and profiles of the region's top wineries, Swirl, Sip & Savor is for home cooks who want to enjoy the very best of the Northwest's food and wine.

This useful book includes appetizers and small-plate recipes from 100 wineries in the region. (Hand-selling tip: Swirl, Sip, & Savor also contains short profiles of dozens of featured vineyards.)
