Day 4: Today’s giveaway is a set of books that will complement your food library. My book, the Food Lovers’ Guide to Seattle ($14.95) and Food Lover’s Guide to Wine by Karen Page and Andrew Dornenberg ($25)
The winner of yesterday’s giveaway is Kate from Kan I have some more? Email me your address.
Resolution 4: Explore new restaurants and learn more about choosing and drinking wine.
Food Lovers’ Guide to Seattle is the ultimate guide to the best restaurants, bakeries and specialty shops. This book gives you a backstage pass into the Seattle food scene. It is the perfect gift for any food lover.
Food Lover’s Guide to Wine is an indispensable reference, formatted like the authors’ two previous bestsellers The Flavor Bible and What to Drink with What You Eat, an encyclopedic A-to-Z guide profiling hundreds of different wines by their essential characteristics-from body and intensity to distinguishing flavors, from suggested serving temperatures and ideal food pairings to recommended producers (including many iconic examples). Here you can learn all you need to know about wine.

Love today’s resolution – everyone should try more new restaurants so we can keep them in business! And wine? No brainer, must have!
I love that there is a Seattle focused food guide, there are a few hidden gems in Seattle that do great wine pairing. Elemental is a definite on my list, and it is one of my resolutions to be more thoughfut about where I eat out.
Would love to know more about wine pairing with food.
Part of that resolution should be to visit the Seattle surrounding areas as well. Yes, Seattle has thousands of restaurants, but small communities are worth the visit. Many of them have a gem of a place to experience food.
oo i just moved to the city so this book would be very helpful for a foodie like me!
I totally need to learn more about drinking and choosing wine:)
I resolve to branch out and try new local restaurants!
What a great prize! Hearing rave reviews of your book and have similar wine goals as your resolution! 🙂
I also tweeted todays give a way! 🙂
My resolution is to try a restaurant I haven’t been to yet once a month.
I tweeted too
It does really seem time to expand our choice of eateries, especially beyond the Eastside. And with ancestors who were vintners, first in Burgundy and then in Oregon, it’s time to stop being intimidated when reading the wine list!
