Unlike most soon-to-be college graduates, Kara Joseph found something in wine she couldn't quite explain. It had nothing to do with the penny wine nights down at the local pub or the off-campus mixers. It called to her. It brought people together. The mystery and unshakable feeling that it was more than just a drink led her on a journey toward becoming a sommelier, taking on Napa Valley and New York City, and finding the answers in wine she desperately yearned to discover. Pursuing wine as her passion brought Kara adventures, struggles, and an insatiable desire to understand wine to the core.

If Wine Could Talk intertwines two stories, one of a young girl's narrative molded by wine and the other being the answers to all your need-to-know wine questions. Follow Kara's story of defying limiting beliefs, choosing a challenging but rewarding path, and sharing the soul of the vine. So pour yourself a glass and dive into a tale that only an unconventional wine-filled life could create, and begin your own journey of wine discovery with an education on all the wine basics. You might even impress your friends at the next wine tasting.

The notion of "living to eat" is no longer an admission of gluttony or a problem with self-control. It has, in fact, become a badge of honor. Author Jeffrey Spear reveals the way he has lusted after food and eaten his way through life. The book starts with indelible culinary encounters from his childhood home of Baltimore Maryland followed by some of the more interesting and exotic locations he has visited including Lebanon, Malawi, Buenos Aires, Los Angeles, Serbia, Russia and Paris to name a few. Spear's culinary storytelling is accompanied by recipes from each of these locations, allowing the reader to prepare and sample exciting dishes from around the world including Grilled Mouse (Malawi), Pizza con Tutto (Italy), Herring Wearing a Fur Coat (Russia), Bunny Chow (South Africa), Cha Chiang Mein (Hawaii), and Shopska Salad (Serbia) at home. Over 306 pages, including 96 crowd-pleasing and easy-to-follow recipes from the familiar to the esoteric, this book is a gastronomic delight.
