PNWD One of Best Washington Wine Books

August 20, 2008

My seventh book, Pacific Northwest Wining & Dining, was one of five books mentioned in the August edition of Seattle magazine as one of the top books on Washington wine. Here’s the lovely review in its entirety:

Pacific Northwest Wining & Dining
By Braiden Rex-Johnson (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2007, $34.95)
“’Red or white?’ is the quintessential question. Everyone’s taste is different, but if you crave the Cliff’s Notes to pairing wine with Northwest cuisine, look no farther than this book, new from the author of the Pike Place Market Cookbook. Lavish photographs honor our region as a gastronomic destination and illustrate many of the 88 recipes (with suggested wine pairings) adapted from local restaurants, such as Canlis Classic Prawns and Walla Walla Sweet Onion Frittata from 26brix. The locally sourced dinner party (not to mention the esteem of your foodie friends) just got easier to come by.”
