Williams-Sonoma Wine & Food Cookbook
This approachable guide offers a broad overview of wine that focuses on general styles – rather than the minutiae of specific varietals and regions – to help simplify wine-and-food pairings. Author Joshua Wesson, owner of the Best Cellars wine shop in Manhattan, divides wines by their characteristics (sparkling, crisp, soft and rich white wines; rosé wines; three groups of red wine; and dessert wines) and profiles each type. More than 50 recipes are included. Hardcover, 176 pages.
