A bit like BKWine Magazine by the way. The difference being, of course, that for Cook it is Dutch (or Flemish) and French, two of the […]

When the Amazon book recommendations make you happy

If you shop at Amazon you are no doubt familiar with their recurring marketing mails.

The book focuses primarily on presenting a number of the most famous producers, many of the famous houses are included and some independent growers. The selection is not overwhelmingly original, it’s mostly old classic acquaintances, but […]

New Zealand wine book, Aotearoa Nouveau
