The Wine Dine Dictionary – Victoria Moore

For anyone flummoxed by the what to serve with one’s wine, this is the book for you.

The Telegraph’s wine columnist Victoria Moore released her debut book this year, focusing on untangling the sometimes confusing world of wine and food pairing, enlightening readers on some classic combos and imaginative pairings alike.

The book is separated by food and wine, both listed from A-Z, allowing you to navigate to either component for a considered assessment of what will pair best with the other.

Have a bottle of Gruner Veltliner but not sure what to cook with it? Moore suggests asparagus. Cooked yourself a Chile con Carne but not sure on the wine? Perhaps a Chilean Carmenere, suggests Moore. Moore doesn’t just explain what pairs with what, but why the combination works. 

Interspersed with recipes and insights from winemakers across the globe, The Wine Dictionary is genuinely insightful and entertaining – a bible on taste that will stand the test of time.
