Cooking With the Wines of Washington by Troy and Cheryl-Lynn Townsin

Washington State has been recognized as a world leader in producing award-winning wines, many of which originate from family-owned wineries. The region boasts fertile land for growing grapes and fresh ingredients, rendering it one of the most sought-after areas for wine lovers and culinary aficionados alike.

As good meals and great wine go hand in hand, Cooking with the Wines of Washington celebrates the wineries of Washington with a collection of over a hundred recipes for cooking with wine.

Authors Troy and Cheryl-Lynn Townsin have scoured the region for secret family recipes and the tricks of renowned chefs. The result is a comprehensive book capturing Washington’s hidden gems and brightest diamonds from kitchens and vineyards across the state.

This book takes readers on a culinary journey spanning Puget Sound to the Columbia Gorge, complete with useful winery listings, maps, and driving distances. Serving as a culinary tour guide and cookbook, each recipe uses wine as the feature ingredient so that meals can start and finish with the pop of a cork. Elegant recipes like Mushroom and Pinot Noir Soup, Masset Winery Braised Duck, and Hedges Family Estate Fortified Poached Pears make for dazzling wine-inspired meals, each dish rooted in the rich histories of the wineries that motivated their creation. Cooking with the Wines of Washington is a delightful springboard to the culinary exploration of Washington wine country, a perfect wine companion for the road or in home kitchens.
