Full of valuable, well-founded information. Perfect! - Michel Roux Jr

A proper go-to wine book stuffed with detail and brilliant ideas, I devoured it in one sitting and have been going back for seconds ever since - Helen McGinn, author, The Knackered Mother's Wine Club

This work of genius means you'll ALWAYS know which wine goes with which food - Marina O'Loughlin

Unbelievably useful - India Knight, Sunday Times, 'India Loves'

I can't think which is the better place to keep The Wine Dine Dictionary, in the kitchen or beside my bed, but either way it's an essential buy for any cook or wine-lover and a brilliant read - Fiona Beckett

How can you not love a book that recommends drinking a Rhone syrah with rillettes on one page and Earl Grey tea or an Islay whisky with kippers on another page? - Sybil Kapoor

It is an unparalleled piece of work and I dived in with relish. The science-nerd in me loved the technical background to the complexities of taste and the writing is as delicious as the produce she describes. I shall keep it close by my elbow in the kitchen to act as a knowledgeable friend in pairing wine and food - Jessica Seaton, author, Gather, Cook, Feast

A brilliant book: intelligent, accessible, and incredibly useful. This is my new "go to" bible for planning a meal - Diana Henry

Such practical, down-to-earth advice is invaluable and means - with apologies to Jamie and Nigella - The Wine Dine Dictionary is going to be my new kitchen bible. It should probably be yours too - Claire Coleman, Metro

Like having a knowledgeable, yet non-judgemental sommelier by your side... Interspersed with tempting recipes and insider tips from wine-makers, this is your ultimate guide to all things grape - Lucy Foster, Stylist

A characteristically unpretentious (no Pinot Grigio bashing for her) but immensely knowledgeable guide to matching food and wine... Briliant - Caroline Sanderson, Bookseller

Moore, in her excellent new book The Wine Dine Dictionary, is illuminating on appreciating the scent of wine, noting that it is now claimed "that we can discriminate between more than one trillion different smells, making the nose arguably more discerning than the eyes or the ears" - Susy Atkins, Sunday Telegraph

Moore's credentials are impeccable - she is an award-winning win writer and columnist, and her Dictionary is one of those ideas so brilliantly simple that it seems incredible no one has thought of it before... I've owned Moore's Dictionary only a few days, but I already know it will become one of my most-used kitchen reference books... [Moore's] combination of serious expertise and delight in the vast range of experience offered by wine and food is so playful and knowledgeable that you would have to be very grand indeed not to love it - Jane Shilling, Daily Mail

A go-to guru on all liquid refreshments - Telegraph

A truly brilliant book... the wonderful Wine Dine Dictionary is a book for all levels of wine "expert" - whether you love nothing better than a cut-price supermarket rosé or regularly splash out on all collectible vintages... If you love eating or drinking - or both - The Wine Dine Dictionary will quickly become absolutely indispensable... Word to the wise: it's also a gift that will be appreciated by just about everyone - Running in Heels

Moore is one of the best wine writers of her generation... The book [...] breaks new ground with interesting entries from leading producers about what they like to eat with their own wines. These are often enlightening... The writing [and] the layout [are] both impressive... Wine and food lovers will find much to enjoy and agree with here - Tim Atkin, Harpers

If you find the prospect of choosing the correct wines to serve with specific dishes mildly terrifying, then wine writer Victoria Moore's new book, The Wine Dine Dictionary may just be the thing to get you out of a hole. It's hard to understand why nobody has produced a book such as this before now, as it does a mean job of demystifying the hocus-pocus around wine and food matching, and delivering its information in a hugely readable and accessible fashion... Written with authority, warmth and wit, and [it] emanates from the starting point that putting food together with wine is supposed to be fun - Katy McGuinness, Irish Independent Weekend Magazine

Accessible, entertaining... It's an invaluable oenophile's encyclopaedia for all kinds of wine-drinker - Waitrose Magazine

A gloriously breezy read from one of our best wine writers, this A-Z of dishes and wines packs in loads of information and should be everybody's go-to book for bullseye food and drink pairings - Kate Hawking, Olive Magazine

For a perfectly balanced wedding-day feast, learn how to pair food and wine with The Wine Dine Dictionary - You & Your Wedding

This is a fantastic, beautifully written and researched book on how to choose a wine that won't clash with your palate - American

The perfect gift for anyone who spends too long scouring wine labels for hints about food matches, Victoria Moore's book lets you look up your meal or its constituent parts to find a selection of suitable accompaniments - Week

A refreshing approach... with nuggets of insight and opinion. This intelligently-written book is an essential read - Restaurant Magazine

A book [that] has a place in every kitchen - Good Things

As concise and vivid as a Nobu Bento Box [...] with a seemingly exhaustive list of food and wine matching options, punctuated by vignettes from an impressive list of winemakers. The Wine Dine Dictionary is a book that [...] empowers you to trust your own sense of taste - Rob Buckhaven, Exclusive

An accessible, comprehensive guide to pairing wine with food. Thoroughly unpretentious, this book would suit those who drink cut-price supermarket bottles as well as the connoisseurs - Harriet Addison, The Times

A must-have for food and wine lovers - Jane Clare, Press Association
