Sweet Wines: A Guide to the World's Best with Recipes


A burgeoning interest in sweet wines of all types has created a new market of wine and food lovers interested in learning as much as they can about this under-appreciated category. In Sweet Wines, best-selling cookbook author James Peterson presents more than 60 wines from around the world -- from the fabled Sauternes and Barsacs of France to the crisp Mosel Auslesen of Germany to the rich ports and sherries of Portugal and Spain. Peterson describes how each wine is made, how it should be served, and what it tastes like. In addition, 40 recipes for hors d'oeuvres, appetizers, entrees, and desserts are paired with the wines they most perfectly complement. The book features dozens of helpful side-bars on topics such as organizing a sweet wine tasting, decanting sweet wines, and how to read a German wine label. A wine vocabulary and a description of the most important grapes are also included. This fully illustrated guidebook, written and photographed by one of our most-respected food authorities, fills a major gap in the marketplace. -- The interest in sweet wines is growing, creating a market for an informative guide about this under-explored category -- There is no other illustrated guidebook devoted to sweet wines, and the coverage here is thorough and authoritative -- The author's many other cookbooks have won James Beard and IACP Awards, and Simply Salmon (Stewart, Tabori & Chang), was a Main Selection of the Good Cook Book Club -- The design is fresh and lively, especially for a category that tends to feature stuffy, dull-looking books Hide synopsis
