A wine book unlike any other, THE FOOD LOVER''S GUIDE TO WINE offers a fresh perspective via the single aspect of wine most compelling to food lovers: flavor.

At the heart of this indispensable reference, formatted like the authors'' two previous bestsellers The Flavor Bible and What to Drink with What You Eat, is an encyclopedic A-to-Z guide profiling hundreds of different wines by their essential characteristics-from body and intensity to distinguishing flavors, from suggested serving temperatures and ideal food pairings to recommended producers (including many iconic examples). The book provides illuminating insights from dozens of America''s best sommeliers via informative sidebars, charts and boxes, which complement the book''s gorgeous four-color photography. Another groundbreaking work from two of the ultimate culinary insiders, this instant classic is the perfect gift book.

Editorial Reviews

ON WHAT TO DRINK WITH WHAT YOU EAT: "This husband-and-wife team has long had the knack of being on the cutting edge of America''s fascination with the food world...In this new work on the magical pairing of food and wine, Dornenburg and Page again rely on a formidable array of insiders to inform and enliven their research." - Chicago Tribune

"The husband-and-wife team of Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page-he is a chef, she a journalist-has produced four books in the past six years, and these are the best places to experience the cult of the New American Chef." - New Yorker

"...Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page had me at ''hello'' a long time ago. That was seven years ago when I read their first book, Becoming a Chef. They went on to enthrall me with Culinary Artistry and then Dining Out, books that have enriched the fount of culinary knowledge in North America..." - Vancouver Sun
