Foreword by Andre Tchelistcheff

Wine is also food. When cooking with wine there is a complex interaction of flavors that enhance the end product. Culinary achievement requires use of the finest ingredients. Using a fine wine is also essential. Each variety varies from mild to intense in flavor so selection of the proper wine for each recipe is important. The author did years of research to find the perfect wine for each recipe. She guides the reader in the techniques of cooking with wine and most importantly, which wine will give optimum results.
