"A great, accessible volume of basic, foolproof recipes, using recognizable ingredients and simple preparations...Each plate is paired with a wine, of course; where this book stands out is in providing price points. The recipes are coupled with three wines, each with a different dollar range, making it easy for the budget-minded to appropriately pair, and alternatively, the cook with a cellar to showcase something that has been put away for a special occasion."
