Cooks&Books&Recipes Featured Cooks Carol & Paul:
This cookbook was a perfect pairing for us because we’re really into wine and food! Many of our website visitors tell us they are concerned that they won’t pair a particular wine varietal with the correct food. Food and wine is all about enjoyment: no one should stress over food and wine pairings. This little cookbook takes out the guesswork and makes it easy for all cooks to look like they’ve been pairing wine and food for years.
The size of the book made it handy to use, and we really liked the easy-to-understand and straightforward wine information that was provided at the beginning of each section. We liked the wine varietal choices that the author made; all of these wine types are easy to find in a wine shop or grocery store. The recipes provide simple directions, and the results look far more complex than the preparation would suggest.
