Cooking with Wine is your passport to the world of wine and food. The book goes beyond suggesting wines to accompany dishes, pushing this pairing into another realm; the realm of wine as a complement to ingredients in the pot as well as in the plate. "Glass to plate, plate to glass, the delicate balance of flavors, alternately competing and complementary, make this a fascinating game. The endless quest for the perfect pairing of nature's essences extends beyond borders and cultures. Wine has been used in cooking since antiquity, and was probably one of humankind's first gastronomic inventions. And this certainly wasn't accidental as wine enhances cooking", says the author.
