Description

This informative, witty and accessible book is all about the things that make wine-drinking so delicious and so memorable, building up the steps on how to create an experience around wine both in the restaurant and at the home dining table. It is a quick reference guide with a fun, irreverent straightforward approach on how to include wine in your lifestyle, your social life and your everyday entertaining. Food and its flavours and textures form a constant reference point throughout the book, because internationally regarded sommelier Chris Morrison believes food is the narrative that can help 'unlock wine'.  As he says, "Wine doesn't make sense without food." By simplifying wine, this book answers the question all of us face when wine is on the menu or on the shop shelf: "Where do I start?" This Is Not A Wine Guide tackles the fundamentals but also moves from the bottle forwards: into the reasons why you choose it, open it, drink it; with what company, under what circumstances; in what glasses, with what food. Chris Morrison provides practical information on everything from how not to panic when the cork crumbles, to what to serve with kim chi hot dogs. The core message is that attitude and mindset are the keys to enjoying wine and including it in your lifestyle.
