Food & Wine Pairings
But I was sent a copy of Unquenchable, by Natalie MacLean, who is an award winning author, including four time James Beard Foundation Award winner and I'm glad I agreed. Check out my review here. Great stories, interesting insights for those of us who are not true aficionados, lots of reasonable options for those of us who don't want to spend a fortune on wine.
As usual, when reviewing a book, I head over to the author's web site. Natalie has an awesome one with tons of information about the wines, the pairing options, videos, books, articles...naturally my favorite section is recipes...and she even has a few apps to share.
She's now touring Canada promoting her book and I encourage you to head out to meet her if you can. There's still time to get your tickets to a dinner at Seasons Atlantica November 27th The menu has me drooling. She even has a free - and very cool wine pairing app for your smartphone to take with you. I just downloaded it myself!
Now I just have to figure out which pasta dish (and which wine to pair it with) to make for this week's Presto Pasta Night Roundup, hosted by HoneyB of The Live & Loves of Grumpy's HoneyBunch Send your entries to grumpyshoneybunch (at) yahoo (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com
