The New Wine Country Cookbook

Recipes From California’s Central Coast

Move over Napa: here is the only up-to-date, stunningly photographed gift book available on California’s hottest, fastest-growing wine country, the Central Coast, with 120 wine-friendly and wine-inclusive recipes.

California’s Central Coast wine country is on everyone’s lips. Running roughly from Monterey to Santa Barbara, the Central Coast is the fastest-growing American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the state. Here, great minds conceive and create great wines—many of them blends of Rhône grape varieties. Complement these wines with the lush resources of unspoiled land, sea, and barnyard, and you have the recipe for a fresh and alluring wine country lifestyle.

For nearly two centuries, people have gravitated to the Golden State. But it’s the center of the state that remains pristine, far enough from the crowded cities but close enough for a long weekend trip. The land of rolling, golden hills, lush agricultural produce, and simple values still remains. You could call it “Tuscany, with cowboys.”

In this lushly photographed tome, best-selling cookbook author Brigit Binns writes a vivid, delicious love letter to her home state. 120 wine-friendly and wine-inclusive dishes showcase California’s glorious bounty, such as Shaved Artichoke and Pancetta Salad with Lavender; Fennel- and Garlic-Crusted Roast Chicken; Petrale Sole with Pinot Noir Butter Sauce; and Fresh Fig Tart with Honey, Goat Cheese, and Pistachios. Each recipe has a wine pairing suggestion from the region as well as from afar. Plus, 25 get-to-know-them profiles bring the reader inside the hearts and minds of the region’s passionate winemakers and food artisans. Many people dream of the relaxed and luxurious wine country lifestyle. With The New Wine Country Cookbook, you can now savor the romance, bold honest flavors, and rustic outdoor sensibility of California’s sublimely unpretentious new wine country in your own home.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
