I have a new favorite book in the food department!This is a great book to know what pairings accompany the meal you eat. Or at least you get a great idea of the flavors you would match best, and can choose your own kind based on those tastes.We decided to do the Pepperoni Pizza and Booze night.It called for a different Merlot, and a different beer, but we found the closest match based on body, flavor, etc. only because the store didn't have the exact ones.It was a hit too!They say you need a fru [...]

The debate between wine and beer aficianados over which quaff is paired best with food is never-ending, as each side fiercely defends their choice with all the passion of a political debate. Throwing their hats into the ring are Sam Calgione (arguing for beer) and Marnie Old (arguing for wine), both distinguished representatives of their drink of choice. (Sam is the creator of Dogfish Head, a microbrewery known for creative and fine beers; Marnie is a sommelier extraordinaire who worked for fine [...]

Many people don't think much about which beer they are going to drink with their meal. That's because most people drink the ubiquitous light lager, rather than one of the multitude of styles which could be more appropriate as a pairing. The good news is that brewers like Sam Calagione are out to change that. After running beer vs. wine dinners with Marnie Old over the years, the pair got around to writing a book summarizing the finer points of their arguments for pairing their fine beverages wit [...]

I was really looking forward to this one, as I happen to enjoy beer and wine and food. ;) However, I felt as if the execution left a lot to be desired. The recommendations were overly specific - I would have rather seen more general guidelines, and less "try Old Bay crabs with Trimbach Reserve Pinot Gris". The cheesy "Which Drink Wins" sections were a complete waste of space - how many people are actually going to sit down and try all of those specific combinations? And the fact that so many Dog [...]

This book was the most incredible gift from my dear friend, Arlene! LOVED it!!! It's the perfect book for my boyfriend and me because he is a dedicated craft beer aficionado and I am a huge wine lover. My boyfriend and I love to cook for each other and I've always been a fan of wine/food pairings. Finally, we are now able to pair both wine and beer with special dinners because of this book. We can't wait to try some of these pairings and to be able to finally find and try different pairings with [...]

Some general recommendations for pairing beers OR wines with food. Two authors; fun, debate-like format. Although I'm primarily a beer guy, the wine pairings grabbed my attention because I haven't tried many of the wine varietals mentioned.

The pairings in this book are excellent, as are the debates over the various qualities of beer and wine in general (and in particular).

A quick read, comparing the "best" wines and beers to match with specific meals

I liked the concept and the food pairings, but not the gender bias. Very stereotypical.

FINALLY just bought it. Can't wait to read!!
