Wine, Food & the Good Life: Recipes Celebrating 85 Years of Family Winemaking

Delicato Family Winery has loving performed its craft for 85 years in the historic wine growing region of California's Lodi Valley. Second generation matriarch Dorothy Indelicato and wine and food writer Arlene Mueller give us a culinary tour of this history with a collection of the winemaking family's traditional Italian recipes, mixed with a healthy portion of California flare. From simple quick dishes to all-day affairs, from Minted Tomatoes Salad and Pasta Ascuitto to Champagne Veal, Pancakes with Wine Sauce, and the sainted Osso Buco, whichever you choose it'll be a meal to remember. There's also a lot of good wine sense here, including proper methods for cooking with wine, pairing details, and marinade recipes.
