Earlier this week, Lia introduced us to wine expert, cookbook author and culinary instructor Jill Silverman Hough, who shared her tips for choosing the best wine for the Thanksgiving feast, along with her recipe for easy, yet impressive Coppa-Wrapped Dates with Blue Cheese. We love Jill’s unfussy approach to wine and food, so we’re thrilled to give away a free copy of her latest cookbook, 100 Perfect Pairings: Small Pates to Enjoy with Wines You Love (Wiley).
Win a free copy of Jill’s book, 100 Perfect Pairings: Small Plates to Enjoy with Wines You Love!
What I love about this book is the way it’s set up: Jill starts with the wines, describing the characteristics of each varietal, then offering general tips for the best foods to serve with it and small-plate recipes for each. For example, the German white wine Gewurztraminer has a spicy quality, “like cinnamon, anise, allspice and nutmeg. Baking spices. Warming spices.” Those qualities make it a great match for rich winter fare–like her recipe for Ham, Apple and Cheddar Monte Cristo Sandwiches recipe. Mmm, doesn’t that sound wonderful with a salad for a light supper after a long day of holiday preparations?
