Synopsis: A delicious, comprehensive playbook that pairs 75 wine styles—including where and who to buy them from—with 75 recipes that complement them perfectly
 
“If you want to know what good taste in the modern food and wine scene looks like, this is your manual.”—Jordan Mackay, co-author of The Sommelier’s Atlas of Taste
 
Wine Food is a wine course in a cookbook for everyone who wants to learn about wine simply by drinking it. Here, natural wine bar and winery owner Dana Frank and wine-loving recipe writer Andrea Slonecker distill the basics—how to buy, how to store, how to taste—and deliver more than seventy-five instant-hit recipes inspired by delectable, affordable wines that go with them beautifully.
 
Each recipe opens with a succinct summary of the wine style that inspired it, followed by a brief explanation of how it complements the flavors and textures in the recipe. There are also recommendations for three to eight producers of each wine style.
 
Frank and Slonecker also include a wine flavors cheat sheet, a label lexicon lesson, a short course on wine tasting like a pro, and illustrated features on matching wine with types of favorite foods (typical take-out, beloved pasta dishes, and popular sweets). Whether you like thinking about which bottle to pour at brunch, with picnic fare, for midweek dinners, at weekend feasts, or for all of those times, Wine Food makes learning about wine flavorful, fun, and easy.
