Journalist Niki Mitarea shares her love of food and wine in the attractive Oinomageiremata, or Cooking With Wine. In no-nonsense style, she whizzes budding cooks through the rather intimidating mystique that surrounds wine. A clear introduction deals with wine varieties, how to serve them, what food to drink them with and, above all, how to cook with them. She explains why we should only cook with wine that is good enough to drink, and why using the right temperature and quantity makes all the difference between success and disaster in the kitchen. Wine is an ingredient in each of the 80 recipes which include baked fennel with white wine, spicy sausages with red wine squid stew, salmon with fruit, hare à la Basque and figs in wine syrup.
Enticing close-up shots by photographer Constantinos Kafiris and imaginative presentation by food stylist Elena Jeffrey make the recipes look irresistible.
