Master the mysteries of wine.
The study of wine and beverages has become integral to hospitality education. The Wine, Beer, and Spirits Handbook demystifies the wine and wine-making process, examining not only the making and flavor profiles of wine, beer, and spirits, but also the business of wine service as practiced by a chef or sommelier.
Unique to this book, is the strong emphasis on food and wine pairings, as well as food and beverage interactions. An entire chapter uncovers this broad, often intimidating, topic with detailed information on table wines, sparkling wines, fortified wines, beer and spirits.
More importantly, The Handbook explains theÂ responsibilities of a sommelier from both service and managerial perspectives. Readers explore their wine-related duties including: the developing of wine lists, identifying faulty wines, ordering, receiving, and storing wines, conducting inventory control, pricing, product research, cellar management, and the health and legal implications of wine consumption.
A comprehensive, one-stop resource to the character and best use of beverages, The Wine, Beer, and Spirits Handbook will help every student, chef, sommelier and wine enthusiast confidently master the mysteries of wine and other beverages.
"Forget every diet you've ever considered, because this one is the best one ever!" - Shepard Smith, Fox News Anchor My diet can beat up your diet. I'm not kidding. After one month of nothing but beer and sausage, I lost 14 pounds and cut my cholesterol in half. I did it without powders or pills, without blending food into sludge, and without getting divorced. I did it by drinking carb-loaded, gluten-filled, and alcohol-containing quality craft beer. I did it by eating fat-filled, chemically-injected, and highly-processed meat tubes of glorious sausage. And all under a doctor's supervision. Why did something that should be bad turn out to be so good? Here's the nasty truth about fad diets: The science behind them is questionable, if not pure crap. But that doesn't stop popular opinion, the news media, or quasi-celebrities from climbing on board the latest trend. As a result, an entire generation has been conditioned to think this food is good for you and that food is bad for you. It may make for an interesting talk show, but your stomach and a few billion years of evolution aren't watching. Like all living creatures, our bodies are designed to break down food into proteins, amino acids, and trace minerals - and use them. We get into trouble when we overload that system, shoving more food down the pipe than the system can handle. My doctor and I started with the proposition that, in moderation, you could eat just about anything and lose weight. We were right, but we made some unexpected discoveries along the way. Follow along as patient and physician walk you through this tasty - and a little buzzy - month-long journey to better health. "My new hero!" - Shmonty, 93.3 KDKB Morning Show Host
