Recommending a perfect wine with food has long been celebrated. But here it's the other way around: it's about suitable, uncomplicated and tasty little things to go with the wine and about increasing the enjoyment of wine. Two self-confessed connoisseurs teamed up for this book: Bettina Matthaei has a keen sense of spices, which allows her to continually find new, exciting flavor combinations. Dagmar Ehrlich is an experienced wine connoisseur, studied oenologist, sommelier and wine journalist. With ingredients and spices that are perfectly matched to the respective aromas of selected grape varieties, the two of them open up new worlds of enjoyment for you.

Bettina Matthaei The cookbook author Bettina Matthaei has a strong passion for spices. In their z. Spices always play a special role in some award-winning books and give your recipes their own personal signature. She develops unusual spice mixtures for the family business, the Hamburg manufacturer 1001 Gewürze (www.1001gewuerze.de), as well as for customers, well-known chefs and upscale restaurants. She also organizes Spice workshops, including on board the MS Europa. Her numerous trips to the spice countries of the world inspire her and through the constant use of spices she always discovers new taste nuances. New ideas are constantly emerging as to how spices can be combined harmoniously, excitingly or unusually and used in recipes
Dagmar Ehrlich Her special gift, even as a wine merchant, was to bring people together in order to make enjoyment come alive and be experienced. Since 1991, the studied oenologist Dagmar Ehrlich has been writing about wine and other pleasure-related topics for “Feinschmecker”, “Weingourmet”, “Spiegel”, “Vital” and “Bild”, among others. Her books have been published by Gräfe and Unzer Verlag, Hallwag and Becker Joest Volk Verlag.
