Savoring Leavenworth: Pairing Local Wines with Regional Recipes
by Morgan Fraser
Morgan Fraser follows up her exquisite wine-pairing cookbook, Savoring Chelan, with her latest release—Savoring Leavenworth, a wine-pairing cookbook for Leavenworth and the Wenatchee River Valley.
Savoring Leavenworth pairs wines from the Leavenworth area with recipes from local chefs and cooks, winery owners and winemakers. Again enlisting the help of photographer Richard Uhlhorn and watercolor artist Kerry Siderius, Fraser's new release showcases all new recipes paired with area wines. Fraser thanks Joanne and Alex Saliby and many other local chefs and winemakers for their expertise and contributions.
Whether your fancy is caught by Butternut Squash Ravioli, Hambleton Hominy, Lemon Crab Linguine, Pineapple Salsa or Wine-Poached Pear Sorbet, Savoring Leavenworth will help you with the tips and touches of our towns best chefs, and tell you what wine to serve with your delightful new creation.
Praise by Joanne Saliby, author of the Wenatchee World's Living Well Blog:
"Many [Leavenworth area] chefs use local products whenever possible to prepare dishes complementary to the local wines. These same chefs, along with winemakers and winery owners, have joined local residents in offering recipes to pair with these wines."
"With Savoring Leavenworth you can prepare many of these dishes at home and enjoy them with the wines you take home with you."
