Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg have been providing us that help with their two previous award-winning books WHAT TO DRINK WITH WHAT YOU EAT and THE FLAVOR BIBLE. Now they delve even deeper into the world of wine with their latest book THE FOOD LOVER'S GUIDE TO WINE. Reading this book is like having a conversation with a knowledgeable wine merchant or sommelier. It covers array of wine, wine and food matching and insights and anecdotes that help strip away the mystery that often surrounds wine. In celebration of their visit to Soul Wine we are partnering with Chef Tony Cutini of Tom Douglas Restaurants to provide a little food and wine comparison/matching of our own. We will pour wines made from the same grape variety, one from Washington, the other from France, and match them to Tony's food. It will be great fun!"
