Review:

Master the mysteries of wine.

The study of wine and beverages has become integral to hospitality education. The Wine, Beer, and Spirits Handbook demystifies the wine and wine-making process, examining not only the making and flavor profiles of wine, beer, and spirits, but also the business of wine service as practiced by a chef or sommelier.

Unique to this book, is the strong emphasis on food and wine pairings, as well as food and beverage interactions. An entire chapter uncovers this broad, often intimidating, topic with detailed information on table wines, sparkling wines, fortified wines, beer and spirits.

Readers explore their wine-related duties including: the developing of wine lists, identifying faulty wines, ordering, receiving, and storing wines, conducting inventory control, pricing, product research, cellar management, and the health and legal implications of wine consumption.

A comprehensive, one-stop resource to the character and best use of beverages, The Wine, Beer, and Spirits Handbook will help every student, chef, sommelier and wine enthusiast confidently master the mysteries of wine and other beverages.

From the Back Cover:

The study of wine and beverages has become integral to the operation of a hospitality business. The Wine, Beer, & Spirits Handbook demystifies the wine and wine-making process, examining not only the making and flavor profiles of wine, beer, and spirits, but also the business of wine service as practiced by a chef or sommelier.

Uniquely, The Wine, Beer, & Spirits Handbook approaches this often intimidating subject from a varietal-or type of grape-rather than a regional perspective. Readers learn about the different types of grapes and the wines made from these grapes, discovering what to look for in a wine, how to taste wine, how grape varietals and wine styles interact with food, and how to pair wine and foods. Table wines, sparkling wines, fortified wines, beer, and spirits are all covered in detail.

More importantly, the book explains the responsibilities of a sommelier from both service and managerial perspectives. Readers explore their wine-related duties including developing wine lists, identifying faulty wines, ordering, receiving, and storing wines, as well as conducting inventory control, pricing, product research, cellar management, and the health and legal implications of wine consumption.

A comprehensive, one-stop resource to the character and best use of beverages, The Wine, Beer, & Spirits Handbook will help every current and future chef and sommelier confidently master the mysteries of wine and other beverages.
