The Best Food/Beverage Guidebook? That Depends . . ., May 31, 2008 By Jonathan Hopkins "Hop" (the Rockies)
   This review is from: What to Drink with What You Eat: The Definitive Guide to Pairing Food with Wine, Beer, Spirits, Coffee,
Tea - Even Water - Based on Expert Advice from America's Best Sommeliers (Hardcover) (3 1/2 stars)After reading the slew of
five-star reviews for this volume, today I drove to Barnes & Noble fully ready to purchase it. After spending a fair amount of time
in the aisle surveying its contents, I ended up not getting it, and thought I would explain why not for the sake of those Amazon
readers whose considerations might be similar to my own.I think the issues of relevance are 'who you are' and what you're
looking for in a book like this. I certainly understand why great wine aficionados (presumably with money and time), critics,
sommeliers, restaurateurs and the like would desire and benefit from a work of such sophistication and scope. But for the
hobbyist (like myself), it was just too much. A little 'highbrow' for me -- and I suspect I'm not alone. I didn't find it nearly as
accessible as, for example, Karen MacNeil's Wine, Food, and Friends (which I bought). MacNeil's book has a seasonal
presentation, and, while evidencing an expert's...

Siegfried (Brooklyn NY)
  This review is from: What to Drink with What You Eat: The Definitive Guide to Pairing Food with Wine, Beer, Spirits, Coffee,
Tea - Even Water - Based on Expert Advice from America's Best Sommeliers (Hardcover) Wine lovers, from the casual sippers
to professional Sommeliers, will find solid, clear advice here, in a well organized format. I worked for many years as a
Sommelier and served as Education Director for the Sommelier Society of America, and I can say that no one had done as good
a job of making it easy for you to choose a wine that will not only "match" with your meal, but will make your dining (and
drinking) experience more enjoyable. This book is bound to become one of the indispensible food and wine books that I keep at
hand: a classic in the making. I cannot recommend this book more highly.

Best of breed, June 28, 2008 By Bevetroppo (Meyersville, NJ USA)
This review is from: What to Drink with What You Eat: The Definitive Guide to Pairing Food with Wine, Beer, Spirits, Coffee, Tea
- Even Water - Based on Expert Advice from America's Best Sommeliers (Hardcover) I may run out of superlatives in the course
of this review, so I'm just warning you now. What to Drink with What You Eat is absolutely the most spectacular book ever
written about pairing food with wine. It will turn you instantly into a world-class sommelier, confidently able to pair virtually any
cuisine with a compatible choice. What's more, the recommendations extend far beyond wine to include beer, sake, spirits
coffee, tea and different types of water, so even a teetotaler can derive some value. There isn't a food- or wine-lover on the
planet who wouldn't benefit from having the book always on hand as a resource.The secret sauce here is that the authors, who
have great credentials themselves, have also enlisted the input of dozens of top sommeliers and other authorities to create an
uber-reference, one that gains considerably from its generous tendency to be more rather than less inclusive in offering up
suggestions. Think of the principle of "the wisdom of crowds,"...
