Washington Wine and Food: A Cookbook (Hardcover)
UNIQUE: While there have been a number of books on Washington Wines (though not for years) this title combines great cuisine from top Seattle chefs specifically aimed at accompanying the great wines on offer from Washington. IMPORTANT REGION: Washington is the second largest producer of fine wine in the United States, after California. The people of Washington are very proud of their state's offerings and this beautifully designed tribute will be a great addition to the library of every wine and food aficionado in the state. TOURIST MARKET: Seattle and Washington's wine region are strong tourist destinations, so this book will not just appeal to the locals. It will be out in time to be in the market for the peak of the tourist season in the spring/summer of 2020. GREAT AUTHOR: Julien Perry is a wonderful writer, one of the best we've had in our cookbooks, so we are thrilled to have her back on this book after the great job she did with Seattle Cooks. Her knowledge of the region is encyclopedic and she is well regarded by the culinary and wine community. KYLE MACLACHLAN: This famed, Golden Globe winning, multiple Emmy-nominated Yakima, WA actor (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Desperate Housewives), will be doing the Foreword. MacLachlan also is a vintner in Washington, owner of the Pursued by Bear winery. ("Exit -- pursued by bear" is one of the few stage directions given by William Shakespeare in a play - from The Winter's Tale.
