Wine Country Table—A Delicious Adventure: A WineSpeed Book Review

Wine Country Table, a compelling new book by food-and-wine expert Janet Fletcher, is the literary embodiment of California’s farm-to-table movement—our desire to know where, how, and by whom our food was grown and made before it reaches our tables. Wine Country Table is organized by region, showcasing each region’s wines and harvest crops, followed by I-can’t-wait-to-cook-this recipes. But what makes the book so exceptional is that it tells the stories behind the ingredients. For example, the scallop crudo topped with avocados comes along with the history of a small California avocado farm; and the rosé pairing with that dish connects us back to the story of a local wine estate. Every kitchen needs Wine Country Table as a roadmap to the food and wine culture of California. Fletcher’s culinary tips and tricks—not to mention the gorgeous photographs—will make you want to run down to your local farmer’s market and don your apron. (SRM)
