If you've ever tasted a food you love with a wine that matches it perfectly, you'll know that the combination of the two can be even better than the food or wine on its own. But how to find those divine pairings? In Perfect Pairings you'll find more than 100 mouth-watering recipes organised in themed menus, many with specific wine recommendations, or you can use the at-a-glance food and wine matching guides to experiment and discover your own personal preferences. Classic dishes sit alongside the intriguingly original, and light options are featured as well as indulgent delights. A chapter devoted to cheese teaches you how to successfully pair cheese and wine and put together the perfect cheeseboard. All this plus tips on choosing and buying wine, plus decanting and serving it at home and a glossary of wine terms, make Perfect Pairings an invaluable resource for anyone who enjoys good food and wine.
