A passionate home cook that has been honing her cooking skills for the last 25 years, concentrating on Italian cooking for the last 10 years, writes this review. My favorite cookbooks are "The Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute and "Culinary Artistry". With more than 500 cookbooks in my collection I am usually disappointed in my recent cookbook acquisitions. This book is a nice addition to any cookbook library.The book is subdivided as follows:1. A Road Map to Great Food and Wine Pairing.....a.The rules they are a-changing.....b.The basics.....c.The ugly stepsisters (foods to avoid).....d.Bridge ingredients.....e.Cooking methods as a factor in pairing food and wine.....f.10 tips to successful food and wine pairing2.White Wines.....a.Champagne/Sparkling wine.....b.Sauvignon/Fume Blanc.....c.Pinot Gris/Grigio.....d.Riesling.....e.Gewürztraminer.....f.Viognier.....g.Chardonnay3.Red Wines.....a.Pinot Noir.....b.Sangiovese.....c.Zinfandel.....d.Syrah and Rhone Blends.....e.Merlot.....f.Cabernet Sauvignon4.Dessert Wines5.Seasonal MenusIf you love wine and good food this is a nice book to add to your library. As a lover of Italian food and wine I would have liked a little more emphasis on the cooking and wines of my beloved Italia. But, even with that deduction this is still a nice book to own.For each wine the author spells out the following information:1. Typical aromas and Flavors2. Base Ingredients3. Bridget Ingredients4. Best Source Regions5. Wine Styles6. Tips to Successful Matches for that particular win.
