Thanks to NetGalley and Chronicle Books for this free digital copy in exchange for an honest review! This book is available today. 🙂
Barbara Scott-Goodman has created a beautifully put-together book full of yummy bites to pair with wine. I had girl’s night in my head the entire time I was perusing this book. The photos, by Jennifer May, are lovely! I can only imagine how nice this looks in physical form. It is neatly laid out into clear sections like “Snacks & Bites”, “Dips & Spreads”, “Cheese”, etc. Most of the recipes seemed very doable and Scott-Goodman gives recommendations for wine pairings with each recipe. Some recipes that stood out to me were the Roasted Parmesan Bites (which I made! They’re in the picture! From page 12 of this book!), the Black Bean, Mushroom, and Cheese Quesadilla with Avocado Cream…and basically the entire cheese section. I also really appreciated the section on how to put together a charcuterie board. I will be honest–I skipped over the entire seafood section because I just had to look at the details in the table of contents to know that was not going to be a section I liked. 😂
This book is recommended for anyone who needs date night, girl’s night, self-care night, any-kind-of-night snack and wine pairing ideas!
