New stories are uncovered in an excellent book on the long Hunter Valley wine history and a not-so-fancy-pants modern guide to wine brings a smile to our face with some wine tips as well! Stephanie Alexander needs no introduction but her latest classic book is just that. Aimed at the inexperienced cooks, it's an introduction to the adventure of cooking and will soon have novices cooking and enjoying their time in the kitchen!
