Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Dornenburg and Page, authors of Becoming a Chef and Culinary Artistry, demystify the challenge of food and beverage pairing in this exhaustive, accessible resource. Believing that the best matches create peak experiences, the authors consult with the world's most discriminating palates, who see food and drink as inseparable. With stories from such noted chefs as Daniel Boulud, Traci Des Jardins and Patrick O'Connell and a host of top sommeliers, this comprehensive collection provides a wealth of guidelines for pairings, not only by specific food, but by food type, time of day, characteristics, season and personal mood. From fast food to ethnic cuisine, they include unlikely entries such as Kentucky Fried Chicken (Pinot Noir, Gewürztraminer), oxtails (Barolo), moussaka (Retsina, Rioja), potato chips (beer, champagne) and saag paneer (Pinot Gris). While focusing primarily on wine, the authors include matches for a variety of other beverages, including tea, water, coffee, beer and spirits, and offer the pairings in reverse—what to serve if you've already selected your beverage. This encyclopedic collection is highly recommended for those who give serious thought to the flavor of each dish. 70 full-color photographs. (Oct.)

Format: Hardcover
This is a fantastic guide to pairing beverages with food, and covers a wide assortment of wines. It's a great tool for choosing wines for your dinner parties or for bringing to someone else's.

The only reason I don't give this book 5 stars is because of Chapters 5 and 6. Both have long reference listings of what to pair with what, and the items can be daunting to wade through. This makes it difficult to quickly look something up, and could benefit from more of a dictionary-style organization.

This book allows you chose the apppropriate wine that fuses with food you want to eat. The pairing of wine with food enhances the flavors in your palate. It is a guide in which gourmet goodness can be brought out.
