Book Description

Red meat, red wine.' 'White meat, white wine.' They might be easy to remember, but these 'golden rules' are no longer capable of accommodating the amazing array of ingredients and influences that make up the food we eat today. What Food?

From aioli to zabaglione via osso bucco, an easy-to-follow A-Z of ingredients and dishes makes it simple to choose the perfect wine, beer or spirit to accompany your meal. What Food? Which Drink? also includes 'Matches Made in Heaven' - ideal marriages of food and drink - and other 'Love Lists'. Underpinning the whole book is a reader-friendly discussion of the main varieties of wine, beer and spirits. From 'white meat, white wine' to 'swordfish, South African Sauvignon Blanc' in one easy read.- First accessible, no-nonsense A-Z treatment of the best food and drink combinations, taking into account the huge range of ingredients and foods available to us today - Includes all drinks: wines, beers and spirits - Totally international - Author is an established and highly respected wine and food writer

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is well written and contains information which you can call upon from time to time. It can be used as a reference when planning a meal for a dinner party. I was so pleased with it, I bought another copy to give as a gift to relatives at Christmas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A user-friendly guide 1 Dec 2009
An extremely useful little book if you are unsure which wine to serve with which dish. Very easy to use with foods listed in alphabetical order. The range of dishes is comprehensive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! 29 Dec 2000
By Rubens Altimari - Published on
I have more than 30 books on Wine, and I've been collecting books specifically about matching Food & Wine for quite a long time. Well, this is one of the best! Besides having a great taste, Fiona does something you won't see anywhere else: she also writes about matching beer with food! Kriek (framboise beer) and Brie or Camembert is a combination made in Heaven, for instance. Simple and yet very well designed book, I loved it. I think I like it even better than Joana Simon's classic.
