Foodie Summer Reading
I am currently in the middle of Sales & Service for the Wine Professional (Julyan) which is on the recommended reading list for aspiring sommeliers from the Court of Master Sommeliers. From the same list I also have Perfect Pairings (Goldstein), Grossman’s Guide to Wines (Grossman), Beers & Spirits and yet to start and I am using What to Drink with What you Eat (Dorenburg & Page) as a solid reference for pairing ideas.
We have queued up several food-related books for what will most likely be the summer at the pace we read.
The Omnivore’s Dilemma – Michael Pollan
The Town That Food Saved – Ben Hewitt
In Defense of Food– Michael Pollan
Food Rules– Michael Pollan
We also have a steady stream of food-related magazines that arrive at the house including Food & Wine, Cooking Light, Everyday with Rachael Ray, Wine Spectator, WineMaker, Brew Your Own and Imbibe.
Now I just need to work on selecting some wines to pair with my reading list…
If you have suggestions for food-related books you have read that we should take a look at leave us a comment. If you have them laying around and no longer need them we would be interested in swapping for something we are done with.
