Description

The book also delves into the business side of the wine industry, including the politics and economics behind the production and distribution of wine.

This post originally appeared in EIC Amanda Kludt’s From the Editor newsletter, a roundup of her favorite food and restaurant stories — both on and off Eater — each week. The unassuming criteria of another of her mentors, Terroir wine bar chain co-creator Paul Grieco: “The wine must be yummy. Questioning blind tastings is a radical point of view, certainly a re-examination of some of the wine industry’s inherited wisdoms, despite Asimov’s elevated status. The key message here is: Most of us still don’t understand much about how we experience a food or drink’s flavor. Cork Dork follows the adventures of Bianca Bosker from tech journalist to cellar rat in the elite world of wine.Author takes it on his- or herself to enter, train, and perhaps even win fiercely-competitive high-stakes championship of the subculture, even though he or she is a newcomer and people normally train for years and/or endure many failed attempts before winning fiercely-competitive etc.

Also, I’ve started sniffing all the ingredients I use while cooking and attaching words and/or images to them (cloves: “spicy vanilla”; honey: “cloying but smugly virtuous”; freshly washed coriander: that scene in Princess Mononoke where–spoiler–the forest spirit dies and from its body flowers and new green grass grow).

Throughout the year we will be hosting some fantastic evenings, such as wine tastings, cheese pairings and many more. This wine packs a punch with dark fruit flavors, such as blackberry and cherry, and floral/herbal notes, such as violet and lilac.
