The Well-Equipped Wine Geek – Cookbooks and Wine

We would venture to say the most Wine Geeks also do much of the cooking at home. They are either in the kitchen or out in the yard on the grill. What to cook, what wine to pair? A good start is a set of cookbooks that have wine pairing advice. The Well-Equipped Wine Geek must have cookbooks that include wine pairings. These books make great gifts for family and friends who love wine and love to cook.
