Wine Country Cooking is the culmination of years of the Glenora enterprise's experience in wine, food, and hospitality. The book contains more than eighty recipes from Glenora s Executive Chef Orlando Rodriguez, grouped according to wine pairing suggestions by Glenora winemaker Steve DiFrancisco. Dishes included in the cookbook range from Cabernet-Braised Short Ribs to Gewurz-Steamed Littleneck Clams, and Riesling-Poached Peaches. Wine Country Cooking provides an exhilarating companion to the range of regional wines, matching the diversity of regional ingredients in sometimes surprising, always delightful ways, perfect for the home cook, whether cooking for entertainment, or just for the family. Glenora Wine Cellars was founded in Dundee, on the west shore of Seneca Lake, by grapegrowers Ed Dalrymple, Eastman Beers, and Gene Pierce. Over the past 32 years, the enterprise has distinguished itself with award winning wines and successfully grown to include a 30-room inn and Veraisons, a fine-dining restaurant with an outdoor dining patio and sweeping views of the vineyards.

Chef Orlando Rodriguez graduated from the renowned Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and apprenticed with two of the country's top chefs, first with the award-winning Chef Brendan Walsh at the Elms Restaurant & Tavern, in Ridgefield, CT then, with Chef Albert DeAngelis at Mediterraneo, in Greenwich, CT, before joining the Glenora team. Today, Chef Rodriguez combines his talent for sophisticated American cuisine with local and regional nuances, creating a uniquely exquisite form of wine country fare, allowing the region's bounty to shine through in every entree, without fuss or overbearing technique.

After earning a degree in Microbiology at Stetson University, Steve DiFrancesco became assistant to Guy DeVaux and Charles Fournier in their sparkling wine production at the old Gold Seal Vineyards. He moved to two more wineries, each time working his way up the responsibility ladder, before settling at Glenora Wine Cellars in 1995 as chief winemaker. At Glenora, his steady hand and full attention to detail, shines through in the award-winning production of classical Methode Champenoise. The book explores Steve's methods for the individual wines that appear next to Glenora's individual recipes, so that each chapter and page is an individual vinous delight of the fruits of Glenora Wine Cellars.
