9000 Years of Wine
A World History
Paperback ISBN: 1770502408
Wine has a history far larger than that of any mere beverage. Present at the earliest recorded points of human history, it has been heralded as the height of sophistication or the depths of debauchery, a precious part of religious ritual or a free-flowing social lubricant. This new edition explores the tourism and terroir driven global industry of today and reaches as far back as Ancient Greece and Rome. On the way it stops at significant points of wine history including the birth of Champagne, Venice in the 17th century, trade in the Middle Ages, and more. Celebratory and thorough, A Short History of Wine never lets the scale of history—wars, fraud, blight, colonization, Prohibition—get in the way of a good story or notable bottle.
The A.O.C. Cookbook
Hardcover ISBN: 030795823x
From the James Beard award-winning chef and author of Sunday Suppers at Lucques--a long-awaited book of her delectable recipes for the kind of small shared plates that have made her restaurant A.O.C. one of the most popular eateries in Los Angeles. Suzanne Goin developed the idea for A.O.C. at the bar of her restaurant Lucques, where diners would casually enjoy wines by the glass and share several seasonal appetizers rather than sitting down for a main course. So she and her business partner and wine director, Caroline Styne, opened a restaurant where ordering and eating became a communal affair, and simple, seasonal flavors became the stars of every dish, easily enhanced by a perfectly paired glass of wine. Now, Goin shares the recipes for these wonderfully distinct dishes: Bacon-Wrapped Dates with Parmesan; Duck Sausage with Candied Kumquats; Dandelion and Roasted Carrot Salad with Black Olives and Ricotta Salata; California Sea Bass with Tomato Rice, Fried Egg, and Sopressata; Crème Fraiche Cake with Santa Rosa Plums and Pistachios in Olive Oil; S'mores with Caramel Popcorn and Chocolate Sorbet; and many many more. Organized by season, the recipes are adapted to be served as main courses as well as small plates. And each dish comes with Styne's suggestion for the most complementary glass of wine, so you will learn exactly what kind of flavors flatter your favorite varietal. There is something for everyone, every food mood, every time of year--all in this delicious new book.
