Per Boek Wijzer Auteur: Andrea Immer
In her down-to-earth style, Andrea Immer takes the mystery out of pairing food and wine, providing crystal-clear tips and insights for everyone from novice to connoisseur. She unlocks the secrets of basic food tastes sweet, earthy, savory, buttery, tart, and spicy and how these tastes interact with wine. Immer shows how to make everyday meals extraordinary with the right wine selection, includ-ing burgers (with Zinfandel), macaroni and cheese (with Rioja Crianza), tuna (with Pinot Grigio), and barbecued brisket (with Valpolicella). She also explores many more upscale matches, such as smoked salmon and Riesling, asparagus hollandaise and Champagne, and wild mushroom risotto and California Pinot Noir, to name a few. Explaining how to decode a label to learn how a wine will taste with food, Immer says, for example, that "barrel fermented" might as well say "calling all mushrooms, and Riesling might as well be labeled "coolant for spicy food." The chapter on wine and cheese proves that you can improve on a good thing by learning exactly what works best with your favorite cheeses. The book will also teach you the wine secrets that make dessert a truly grand finale. Focusing on "wine-loving food" those flavors, textures, and cooking techniques that dazzle when paired with the right wine Immer demonstrates how to get the maximum enjoyment out of every food and wine pairing. The book includes twenty original recipes with their ideal wine complements, such as Low Country Shrimp and Grits (Chardon-nay), Short Rib Ragti (brawny reds), and Warm 4 Chocolate Torte (Madeira). pf In-depth pairing charts covering almost every food and wine imaginable and a user-friendly index make finding winning combinations fun and easy. Great Tastes Made Simple is invaluable, whether you are in a restaurant faced with a daunting wine list, in a wine shop searching for that perfect bottle for a special dish, or at home planning dinner parties or particularly enjoyable weekend or weekday meals.
