If you've ever felt intimidated about pairing wine with food for a dinner party at home or a special event, then this book is for you.
For too long food and wine pairing has been reserved for the minority, but not anymore – now all you need is taste buds and a sense of adventure.
This beautifully presented full colour hardback recipe book will encourage and support you to discover the pleasure of matching food and wine for yourself. This first volume showcases sparkling wines of all styles, and challenges usual perceptions by offering tantalising home-cooked recipes for every course of a meal.
The book is divided into eight sections:
1. Chapter 1 - Champagne

3. Chapter 3 - Prosecco
4. Chapter 4 - New World Sparkling
5. Chapter 5 - Sparkling Rose
6. Chapter 6 - Moscato

Each chapter includes an overview of the sparkling wine style, the best cheeses to pair with each style, as well as three delicious recipes such as: chicken tenders with pistachio, almond and parmesan herb crust, mini chicken empanadas with three cheeses and spring onions, shortbread cookies with macadamia nuts, fluffy scrambled eggs with mango salsa, roast duck with cherry sauce and Spanish salami noodles with fetta, pine nuts and crispy lettuce.
