What to Drink with What you Eat

To those of you who have recommended this book -- Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! This book is PERFECT for me. I feel like a whole new world of wine exploration and possibilities has opened up now that I have my very own copy. I can plan my meals and do my wine shopping with a good idea of new (to me) wines I'd like to pair with the food. I'd always been inclined to stick with what I was familiar with, and then ask for a recommendation in that category (i.e., "Can you recommend a nice Cabernet to serve with the steak I'm grilling tonight?") Now I have choices based on the cut, the degree of doneness, the saucing, etc. Just last night I tried a Muscadet for the first time -- brought it to a new local BYO that has a raw bar. It was LOVELY! And a couple of nights ago I served a very well-priced ($11) Montepulciano D'Abruzzo with Tagliatelle with a Bolognese sauce. Delizioso!

I have a feeling this book will soon be added to my list of "Most tattered cookbooks."
