Perfect for the wine novice! If, like me, you wonder at the huge range of wines on the shelves of a shop, the strengths and weaknesses of different types, how a wine you like that is produced in Argentina compares to its counterpart from California, then this book is for you. If, like me, you also enjoy wine but would like to widen your range of enjoyment, this book will tell you how. In easy to follow, non-patronising chapters, it covers history, production, tastes and regions – to name just a few of the wide-ranging aspects of wine production. It covers how to store wine, how to serve it, and what to serve it with. Mysteries solved, and in such a way the answers are at your fingertips. Lastly – and especially relevant for novices like me – the Pocket Bible tells you how to buy wine so, if you should find a particular taste you like, you will learn of similar wines that should appeal. Excellent – and a perfect size to slip in the pocket for the next trip to the supermarket.

There has never been a greater interest in cooking. Never been such a wide range of accessible ingredients from all over the world. Cultural diversity has led to us all broadening our culinary horizons. What better time to celebrate the sumptuous array of delectable books on offer, covering all aspects of our growing obsession with all things food … and drink (!). You won’t find the obvious choices here, the big name chefs and TV show spin-offs. We hope that we’ve lovingly compiled a special menu of off the beaten track titles to fire your imaginations and your ovens. Uncork your inner sommelier, sauté your inner chef and share a spoonful of our passion for something saucy, lip-smacking, eye-feasting and thirst-quenching. Bon Appetit!
We hope you’ll find our Food and Drink category full of titles that can be enjoyed either sitting in the armchair or used in a more practical way in the kitchen. Some of them provide a mixture of both.
