Summary

Essential wine pairings for everything from popcorn to veggie burgers to General Tso’s chicken, based on the wildly popular Grub Street column.

Sancerre and Cheetos go together like milk and cookies. The science behind this unholy alliance is as elemental as acid, fat, salt, and minerals. Wine pro Vanessa Price explains how to create your own pairings while proving you don’t necessarily need fancy foods to unlock the joys of wine. Building upon the outsize success of her weekly column in Grub Street, Price offers delightfully bold wine and food pairings alongside hilarious tales from her own unlikely journey as a Kentucky girl making it in the Big Apple and in the wine business. Using language everyone can understand, she reveals why each dynamic duo is a match made in heaven, serving up memorable takeaways that will help you navigate any wine list or local bottle shop. 

Bubbling with personality, Big Macs & Burgundy will open your mind to the entirely fun and entirely accessible wine pairings out there waiting to be discovered - and make you do a few spit-takes along the way. 

This audiobook includes a PDF wine guide. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Fascinating listen

This is an engaging, entertaining foray into the world of wine and how it pairs with food - no longer exclusive to the world of fine dining. So much fun to listen to! The author takes you on a journey through some of the tastiest food and wine combinations in the world...all from the comfort of your couch. Recommend for everyone!!!

Vanessa is the best sommelier

I'm a wine connoisseur and I highly recommend this book

I have been reading and listening to many books, podcasts and articles.
And also I have gone to many wine tastings in Napa, CA.
None of the above impressed me as much as the “Big Macs & Burgundy” book.

I have to say Vanessa has done an outstanding job on wine tasting/characteristics and wine pairing.

I hope that she comes out with another book.
