<b>INSTANT <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<br />ONE OF THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>CRITICS' TOP BOOKS OF 2017<br /><br />Named a Best Book of 2017 by NPR, <i>Fortune,</i> <i>Smithsonian, Bustle, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Booklist, </i>and more<br /><br />“Thrilling . . . [told] with gonzo élan . . . When the sommelier and blogger Madeline Puckette writes that this book is the <i>Kitchen Confidential </i>of the wine world, she’s not wrong, though Bill Buford’s <i>Heat </i>is probably a shade closer.” —<b>Jennifer Senior, <i>The New York Times</i></b></b><br /> <br />Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine—until she discovered an alternate universe where taste reigns supreme, a world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. Astounded by their fervor and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a “cork dork.” <br /><br />With boundless curiosity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California mass-market wine factories, and even a neuroscientist’s fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: what’s the big deal about wine? What she learns will change the way you drink wine—and, perhaps, the way you live—forever.<br /><br /><br />“Think: <i>Eat, Pray, Love</i> meets <i>Somm</i>.” —theSkimm<br /><br />“As informative as it is, well, intoxicating.” —<i>Fortune</i>

<b>The next frontier in fermenting and home brewing is vinegar: the essential ingredient for enhancing your home cooking. </b>Just about everyone has at least one bottle of vinegar in the pantry, but not many realize how much better the homemade kind tastes—the flavor is incomparable. And it's easy make; all you need is a bottle of your favorite alcoholic beverage, a starter (or mother of vinegar), and a few weeks of hands-off time. <br />  <br /> <i>Vinegar Revival</i> shows you how to use homemade or store-bought vinegar--made from apple cider, beer, wine, fruit scraps, herbs, and more--to great effect with more than 50 recipes. Here are drinks and cocktails (Strawberry Rhubarb Shrub, Switchel, and Mint Vinegar Julep), pickles (Cured Grapes and Pickled Whole Garlic), sauces and vinaigrettes (Roasted Hot Sauce and Miso-Ginger Dressing), mains and sides (Saucy Piquant Pork Chops and Roasted Red Cabbage), and dessert (Vinegar Pie and Balsamic Ice Cream). Whether you want to experiment with home brewing or just add a little zing to your meals, <i>Vinegar Revival</i> demystifies the process of making and tasting vinegar.<br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<p>In <i>The Wine Lover’s Daughter</i>, Anne Fadiman examines—with all her characteristic wit and feeling—her relationship with her father, Clifton Fadiman, a renowned literary critic, editor, and radio host whose greatest love was wine.</p><p>An appreciation of wine—along with a plummy upper-crust accent, expensive suits, and an encyclopedic knowledge of Western literature—was an essential element of Clifton Fadiman’s escape from lower-middle-class Brooklyn to swanky Manhattan. But wine was not just a class-vaulting accessory; it was an object of ardent desire. <i>The Wine Lover’s Daughter</i> traces the arc of a man’s infatuation from the glass of cheap Graves he drank in Paris in 1927; through the Château Lafite-Rothschild 1904 he drank to celebrate his eightieth birthday, when he and the bottle were exactly the same age; to the wines that sustained him in his last years, when he was blind but still buoyed, as always, by hedonism.</p><p>Wine is the spine of this touching memoir; the life and character of Fadiman’s father, along with her relationship with him and her own less ardent relationship with wine, are the flesh. <i>The Wine Lover’s Daughter</i> is a poignant exploration of love, ambition, class, family, and the pleasures of the palate by one of our finest essayists.</p>

<p><strong>An effortless—really!—approach that turns the body into a fat-burning machine.</strong></p><br />Is it possible to eat well, drink wine, and still lose weight? Melanie Avalon is living proof that, heck yeah, it’s not only possible, it’s unbelievably simple and straightforward. It’s all about the <em>what</em> (mostly Paleo, but she’s not a monster about it), the <em>when</em> (believe it or not, brief fasting can mean freedom rather than restriction), and the <em>wine</em> (red wine can be a secret bullet for weight loss—who knew?). It’s a combination that Avalon discovered after years of self-experimentation and intense research on the mechanics of body fat regulation.<br /><p>In <em>What When Wine</em>, Avalon shares her journey to a healthier lifestyle, with the tips and tricks she learned along the way, as well as a jumpstart plan including 50 delicious Paleo-friendly, gluten-free recipes by chef Ariane Resnick.</p>
