A fascinating explanation and exposition of food-food and food-wine matching based on aromatic compounds in common. It is presented reasonably clearly, despite the amount of technical language and information necessary.

A lot of repetition can be forgiven as necessary to maintain the context for the reader. It is not an index of food and wine matches, rather it creates a foundation for personal exploration. Perhaps one of the best parts are the creative recipe and matching suggestions that encourage you to explore the ideas and concepts on your own. I would say this book is oriented toward the person very keen on fine cooking and dining, and fine wines.

This book goes into the complexities of matching foods with other foods and foods with wine - it explains scientifically in great detail why foods and wines work togegeter. The only compaint I have is that there is no index so it is very difficult to find a specific food item that you may want to use. This is a great reference book.

Great subject, innovative approach based on aromatic compounds results in interesting wine/food pairings and flavour associations.

Food and aromas primarily in the mediterranean/middle eastearn herb and spice range (Anise-flavoured foods, cloves, rosemary, saffron, ginger, cinnamon, chili peppers, cool flavours, sherry wines), with some sweet associations (Sauternes, Maple syrup, Pinapple and strawberries, Gewürztraminer and lychee) and a nod to beef and cheese.

Looking forward to the exploration of more wine aromatic compounds and food associations.

Somewhat annoying writing style detracts from the great contents.

Je n'ai jamais reçu l'article même s'il a été commandé en octobre 2012. J'aimerais un remboursement ou que le vendeur communique avec moi, merci.

This book is excellent. Its not only applicable to wine. The book is an excellent source of inspiration for flavor combinations in recipes.

This makes a great gift. The book takes time to get through because of the complexities of the concepts and combinations..
