Book DescriptionThe only book that presents food and wine pairing from a culinary and sensory perspective. Demystifying the terminology and methodology of matching wine to food, Food and Wine Pairing: A Sensory Experience presents a practical, user-friendly approach grounded in understanding the direct relationships and reactions between food and wine components, flavors, and textures.

The text takes a culinary perspective first, making it a unique resource for culinary students and professionals. Food and Wing Pairing: * Lays out the basics of wine evaluation and the hierarchy of taste concepts * Establishes the foundation taste components of sweet, sour, slat, and bitter in food, and dry, acidity, and effervescence in wine, and looks at how these components relate to one another * Discusses wine texture, and the results of their interactions with one another * Examines the impact that spice, flavor type, flavor intensity, and flavor persistency have one the quality of wine and food matches * Includes exercises to improve skills relating to taste identification and palate mapping * Provides a systematic process for predicting successful matches using sequential and mixed tasting methods * Gives guidance on pairing wine with foods such as cheese and various desserts, as well as service issues such as training and menu/wine list development Food and Wine Paring provides students and professionals with vivid and dynamic learning features to bring the matching process to life with detail and clarity. real-world examples include menus and tasting notes from renowned restaurants, as well as Aperitifs or vignettes portraying culinary notables--both individuals and organizations--which set their wine parings in a complete gastronomical, regional, and cultural context.
