Hello Everybody, It’s Vince Senatore, Everybody’s Wine Guy… Have you ever tasted a medium rare Filet Mignon, drenched in Bearnaise Sauce; or a Broiled Maine Lobster, ready to be accompanied by a pool of drawn butter? Can there be anything better than this? Oh yes there is!!! The Filet is screaming for a glass of French Bordeaux or a Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. And that Lobster will be incredibly enhanced by the addition of a glass Pouilly Fuisse or a big, Russian River Chardonnay. Really this is a great way to live! With that said, I am extremely excited to announce the release of my book, “A Guide to Food and Wine Pairing”. The book is a culmination of 39 years of experience in the wine industry. I have had the great honor to have traveled and dined in some of the greatest culinary spots on this planet. And, I’m ready to share them with you. After a little bio, I offer valuable information (in layman’s terms) on: “How to Taste” and the “Preparation of Food and Wine”. The next section is about the food – lots of insightful information regarding the major food groups and how they relate to wine. Next, it’s about the wine. I offer material that connects the different grape varieties with different food categories. Then, we pair them up. We offer over 630 foods with the perfect matching wine and an alternative (when needed) to wines that might be hard to find. Finally, a glossary of wine terms that will help explain the lingo. Further, if you sign up at our website, www.everybodyswineguy.com, you will receive our monthly newsletter with lots of great ideas for food and wine pairing. You are going to have a remarkable amount of information. Food and wine pairing will be at your fingertips immediately. Just think, for less than a medium priced Napa Cabernet, you can begin an extraordinary new journey into the world of food and wine pairing.
About the Author
My name is Vincent Senatore. I was born in Brooklyn, New York to a couple of second generation Italians. While both of my Italian parents were born in Brooklyn, all of my grandparents and their immediate relatives were right off the boat from Italy and Sicily. While there were no great chefs or wine experts in the family, our giant family gatherings formed the basis for my love of food and the art of matching flavors, aromas, tastes, and textures with beverages that enhance the overall experience in fine dining. My 39 years in the wine industry has given me the opportunity to see food and wine in a different light. I was lucky enough to be part of some of the best marketing and Sales companies in America. After spending 4 years in Palm Beach, Florida, I landed my first executive position with Seagram’s special wine division, Chateau and Estates. C&E had the finest portfolio of French Bordeaux wine in the country. Then I spent a number of years with a company called Vintage Wine Merchants dealing in 10 of the best properties in California. During the mid to late 80s, California wine was really starting to become a major player in the retail and restaurant arena, and I was right in the middle of it. I absolutely loved that time. However, it was the 90s that brought the real substance to my education and understanding of food and wine. While representing a number of wonderful wineries from Italy and spending countless hours in the vineyards, I really learned how important food and wine were to a culture. Their lives were centered on the afternoon and evening meals. It would be fair to say that I have been extremely fortunate to have experienced some of the finest cuisine the world has to offer, and I thank God that I joined the wine industry, which put the exclamation point next to the word “Gourmet.”
Such a great book! Food and wine pairings are delicious! My favorite Christmas present by far.
Easy to read. Good information. Love the pairing section.
