Matching the right wine to any dish can be the ultimate dining puzzle. Pairing Wine and Food, with its comprehensive, ready-reference lists of foods and their complementary wines, will show you how. With hundreds of international dishes listed, and a wealth of wines that go with them best, the book also covers how and why foods and wines taste as they do, and how those tastes blend. This fully revised book takes the original 1999 edition and updates it for today's vibrant international culinary atmosphere. This edition reflects the wider range of wines popular now, from South America, Australia/New Zealand and elsewhere, as well as cuisines such as Thai and Indian that are commonplace for food enthusiasts today. Also featured are famous contemporary chefs speaking about wine and food pairings.

In the press
“The superlative precision provided in Pairing Wine and Food should serve to blur the divisiveness often found between foodies and grape nuts. At its best, the palate game (played by both food and wine lovers) requires the most honed tasting skills backed by a prodigious memory. Johnson-Bell has contributed a splendid resource for the novice and expert.”
