Summary

The best-selling Perfect Glass of Wine introduced budding aficionados to the pleasures of the vine. Now The Perfect Match takes readers to the next level: exploring the perfect partnership of wine and food. The Perfect Match is both a guide to the principles of pairing wine with food and a glorious collection of mouthwatering recipes. Author Brian St. Pierre takes the intimidation out and puts the accessibility in, and lists grapes by varietal with descriptions of their principal flavors, virtues as a companion with meals, and the foods they go best with. This artfully photographed volume offers over 70 delicious recipes, many based on the classics of the great wine-producing regions of Europe, as well as contemporary cuisine from the New World. Additional topics include flavors that are difficult to match, how special occasions influence wine choices, and the big cheese question: red, white, dry, or sweet? With two handy indexes, one by wine and one by major ingredient, finding the perfect match has never been easier.
