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.
