Where do wine grapes come from and how are grape varieties related to one another? What is the historical background of each one? Where are they grown? What sort of wines do they make?
Using cutting-edge DNA analysis and detailing almost 1,400 distinct grape varieties, as well as myriad correct (and incorrect) synonyms, this book examines grapes and wine as never before. Here is a complete, alphabetically presented profile of all grape varieties of relevance to the wine lover, charting the relationships between them and including unique and astounding family trees, their characteristics in the vineyard, and--most important--what the wines made from them taste like.
Presented in a stunning design with eight-page gatefolds that reveal the family trees, and a rich variety of full-color illustrations from Viala and Vermorel's century-old classic ampelography, the text will deepen readers' understanding of grapes and wine with every page. Combining Jancis Robinson's worldview and nose for good writing and good wines with Julia Harding's research, expertise, and attention to detail plus Dr. Vouillamoz's unique level of scholarship, "Wine Grapes" offers essential and original information in greater depth and breadth than has ever been available before. This is a book for wine students, wine experts, and wine lovers everywhere.
A compilation of poems and short essays inviting all to drink freely of God's love, through Christ Jesus. Intoxicatingly sobering; for though Christ satisfies, we want to taste more, and more, and more, and more.
Thai cooking is renowned for its perfect balance of flavours and textures and for its imaginative presentation. And the more people there are to share it, the better: for the Thais, the sharing of food is a source of great joy. Over the centuries migration has brought many influences from abroad, especially from China and (in the south) the spicier traditions from India. Chillies may have been introduced by Portuguese traders in the sixteenth century. Although veganism is virtually unheard of in Thailand, there is no need for vegans to miss out. Many of the ingredients are already familiar to vegan cooks, and the more specialist ingredients are becoming increasingly easy to get hold of. There is more good news too: many of the dishes are very quick and easy to prepare. Linda Majzlik has created over 120 dishes in her own kitchen, using authentic Thai ingredients and flavours, but avoiding the use of animal ingredients. Try her Beansprout and Lettuce Soup, the Tofu and Tamarind Dip, a bowl of Carrot, Ginger and Sesame Fried Rice, some Curried Aubergine with Tofu, a plate of Broccoli with Peanut and Chilli Sauce, a Pineapple and Water Chestnut Salad, all accompanied with Pan-fried Bread, some Crispy Fried Garlic, Onion and Shallots, and finish the meal off with a Pumpkin and Coconut Pudding.
Clarified Gospels Intertwined is "a blue sky partially obscured by white clouds" in comparison to the other endeavors of intertwining the Gospels. It was prepared by very carefully and patiently intertwining the four Gospels-Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John-from the Clarified New Testament, which included some of Elnora's New Testament notes, lessons, and comments. By intertwining those four accounts of the Lord's life on Earth, you get a clearer vision of what really happened while He was here. Reading the four Gospels separately is as looking in a broken mirror, at an unsolved puzzle, or an overcast sky, for they were written in fragments. That is, each writer wrote different versions of the accounts of the Lord's travels and accomplishments. That makes the text very mysterious, obscure, and vague. However, when those individual accounts are intertwined, the text becomes more comprehensible, understandable, and clear. Thus, you get a better view of the scriptures. When you discover for yourself that Clarified Gospels Intertwined is "a blue sky partially obscured by white clouds" in comparison to the other endeavors of intertwining the Gospels that you have read, you will be looking forward to Clarified Gospels Intertwined, Expounded, which will be published at a later date, for it will be "a fully exposed rainbow," as it will be fully expounded, in italics, with the many notes, lessons, and comments that are incorporated into the Gospels portion of the Clarified New Testament, Expounded from which it will be intertwined.
