Description: The long-awaited follow-up to the best-selling Wine Lover's Cookbook, The Wine Lover Cooks with Wine sets its sights on wine as an ingredient. Wine is the ideal choice for delicately poaching fresh fish, braising meaty ribs, or as part of dark, richly flavored reductions, adding complexity and intensity to each dish -- not to mention flavor.
In his customary easy-going style, Sid Goldstein uses his vast knowledge, as both a trained chef and a wine writer, to explore each type of wine, from light, fruity whites to full-bodied reds -- including fortified wines such as sherry and madeira and specialty wines such as champagne and retsina -- and reveals to us how each is used best in cooking.
Try the seared scallops drizzled with a tangy sauce made with fume blanc and grapefruit juice or roast an impressive leg of lamb flavored with a classic red wine marinade. And port is the secret ingredient that turns chocolate cake into an oh-so-adult treat. In all these recipes, wine is the essential ingredient that transforms the dish from simple to spectacular, whether as featured attraction or subtle support player.
