Daring Pairings

There are hundreds of varietals of wine available in the world, but walking through the aisles of a lackluster wine shop, you wouldn’t know it. But if you happen across a new name, do you know what to serve with it? Evan Goldstein, a four-time James Beard Award nominee and a Master Sommelier, gives you some clues. His book Daring Pairings from University of California Press can help you tell your Albarinos from your Gruner Veltliners, but goes one step further to aggregate recipes from America’s best chefs to show off the characteristics of these new wines. Hubert Keller gets Pinot Blanc, Nate Appleman gets Nebbiolo, Charlie Trotter tries Gamay, Suzanne Goin gets Carignan, and you should definitely get Daring Pairings for $35, available in stores and online.
