What to Drink With What you Eat

What better way to celebrate your relationship this Valentine’s Day than by enjoying perfect food and wine pairings with your partner?  Whether you’re serving oysters or truffles, strawberries or chocolate, pink Champagne or a special bottle of Pinot Noir, the new food-and-drink-pairing app WHAT TO DRINK WITH WHAT YOU EAT  by James Beard Award-winning authors (and spouses) Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page can help ensure your Valentine’s Day is deliciously romantic by providing foolproof pairings for each.  (No spoiling those oysters — or the mood — with a Cabernet, or that strawberry tart with dry Champagne!)

Newly released for the iPhone and based on “the world’s greatest book on the subject”* — WHAT TO DRINK WITH WHAT YOU EAT, which won the IACP Award for Cookbook of the Year, the Georges Duboeuf Award for Wine Book of the Year, and the Gourmand World Cookbook Award — the app incorporates input from experts at America’s best restaurants, with more than 12,500 listings covering 1,500-plus categories.  Users can find just the right beverage (wine, beer, spirit, sake, juice, coffee, tea, or water) to accompany virtually any food (ingredient, dish, or cuisine).  The app also works in reverse, allowing readers to search by beverage to find the ideal food match.  Special features include the ability to bookmark favorite pairings and to share them with friends.  You can also connect to the authors’ blog and Twitter feeds directly from the app.  It is irresistibly priced at $2.99.

Compatible both in and out of the kitchen, Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary, and have collaborated on several groundbreaking books chronicling and celebrating America’s culinary revolution, including the Amazon.com and Entertainment Weekly bestseller THE FLAVOR BIBLE, winner of a 2010 Nautilus Book Award and a 2009 James Beard Book Award.  Dornenburg has cooked at top restaurants in New York and Boston, while Page is a Harvard MBA who has consulted in the food and beverage industry.  The couple lives in New York, and is coming out with a new wine book in the fall of 2011.  Their website is www.becomingachef.com.
