Dana Frank (Bar Norman, Bow & Arrow, Food & Wine sommelier of the year) & Andrea Slonecker (author of six cookbooks, former recipe editor of Kinfolk magazine) are dropping by the shop Saturday afternoon to promote their new book, Wine Food. Part cookbook, part wine-pairing guide, Wine Food captures Dana & Andrea's passion for putting together a stellar, complete meal.
Jon Bonné lauds, "Finally! A book that treats wine as an essential part of the table - by making it the centerpiece of a meal."
As written on the inside cover:
-- Wine Food is a wine course in a cookbook for everyone who wants to learn about wine simply by drinking it. Here, sommelier 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, all inspired by affordable wines made by producers to know. Each recipe opens with a succinct summary of the wine style that inspired the dish and explains the interplay between the wine and the food. 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. --
Stop by between 3-5pm tomorrow afternoon and join Dana & Andrea for a special in-store wine tasting + book signing. We'll have plenty of copies of Wine Food on hand, if you're interested in taking a look or purchasing a copy.
