In "Wine Secrets", forty of the world's top wine experts share the tricks, techniques, and wisdom they've learned through decades of experience. Celebrity chef Jacques Pepin shares the best uses for leftover wine in the kitchen. Sommelier Oliver Baru proves that you sometimes can judge a wine by its label. Restaurateur Piero Selvaggio tells diners the best way to send back an unacceptable bottle, plus tips on tasting, drinking, ordering, storing, and more. Each technique is described in the chef's own words, along with a short profile and commentary from author/sommelier Marnie Old. With advice ranging from the basics (does anything pair well with broccoli?) to the extreme (yes, you can freeze open bottles of wine!), "Wine Secrets" will appeal to beginners as well as established oenophiles. With charming illustrations and contributions from some of the world's biggest wine experts, this sophisticated package is the perfect addition to any wine lover's bookshelf.
