The Food Lover's Guide to Wine Authors in Town

A discerning palate in food translates well to a discerning palate in wine because, well, they're both really about flavor. But wine and food literature have split ways in the past decade or so, with books and personalities focusing on one or the other but not both -- something Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg hope to reverse.

The two authors' previous credits include The Flavor Bible (2008) and What To Drink With What You Eat (2006), which fall along that same line of melding one's inner sommelier and gourmet.

For their latest, The Food Lover's Guide to Wine, the pair are hitting up two S.F. bookstores Monday (tonight!) and Tuesday evenings.

Monday's event is at Omnivore books, where the authors will sign and discuss from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday's is at Book Passage, also starting at 6 p.m.

The $35 book features informative sidebars and boxes to accompany its comprehensive guide to selecting and enjoying the right wines, which makes it easy to impress your connoisseur friends without having to study for a sommelier license -- and with four-color photography to illustrate your way.
