"This book presents a completely new way of looking at the world of wine, devised by award-winning sommelier Francois Chartier. Chartier has dedicated over twenty years of passionate research to the molecular relationships between wines and foods. This is the first book to present his findings, and approaches the subject of food-and-wine pairing from a molecular level.
