Welcome to Edwin’s Cellar. This book is for wine lovers who want to learn and appreciate the art of matching fine wines with appropriate foods. I believe that wine is made to accompany food, and that each enhances the other. I believe that wine is at its best when paired with suitable foods that help to bring out and enhance the finest qualities in each wine. As for food, I think of it this way: wine is the final spice added to the food in one’s mouth, giving it that extra jolt of flavor enhancement. This book is a guide to this process of quickly finding the right food match for a given wine.
Do you want to match that special rare bottle of wine with a can't miss food dish? Do you enjoy cooking elaborate gourmet 3-star Michelin meals and have, or plan to stock your cellar with, the wines to properly accompany them? Or maybe you just enjoy having an everyday supermarket wine and want to serve it with the most compatible dishes for maximum enjoyment of these wines. The purpose of this book is to familiarize the reader with the different types of wines and the methodology used to match each of these wines with compatible foods.
