  1. Does not feel like a lot of cookbooks offer wine selection. We had a wave in Norway around the turn of the century, but I don’t see it often any more. Several here that I will definitely check out, much appreciates😊
  2. I love cookbooks with suggestions for which wines pair well with the recipes. I'm fairly good at matching wine with food, but I just think it adds another dimension to a cookbook. Also, sometimes I have a specific wine I want to drink and need some recipe inspiration rather than finding the recipe first and then the wine. Most of my favorite cookbooks with wine pairing ideas are Norwegian, but Ripailles by Stéphane Reynaud (originally published in French) is one of my most used English ones, even though the wines are a bit general. Does anyone else have any favorite cookbooks with suggested wine pairings?
  3. Thanks for your thoughts! I agree that Grüners are really versatile as well, not a bad thought. Sherry might be good as well! I might try a couple of different wines as well, if the first bottle is a complete miss!
  4. I've tried to scour the internet for suggested wine parings for the caramelized carrot soup from Modernist cuisine at home, without luck. It tastes very different from your typical carrot soup, both sweeter and a lot more powerful. I'm thinking champagne might do the trick or I might revert to my "when in doubt" favorite - riesling (I'd guess something with quite a bit of body and some age). Does anyone have any experiences to share?
