Product description

After the workday, in places like Seville, Milan, Barcelona, and other cities that dot the Mediterranean, people gravitate to wine bars to relax, meet friends, savor small dishes of flavorful food, and, of course, enjoy the local wines that perfectly complement the moment. In "Wine Bar Food," acclaimed restaurateurs Cathy and Tony Mantuano show you how to re-create this irresistibly appealing part of the Mediterranean lifestyle at home. Organized by city, from Lisbon to Rome, and paired with accessible wines from each region, the delightfully unpretentious, simply prepared dishes can be shared as small plates by many or make a sit-down dinner for two or more. The 100 recipes emphasize flavor and ease of preparation over strict authenticity, so you'll be able to round up the ingredients effortlessly to create delicious meals any night of the week, including: Flaming Ouzo Shrimp (from Athens) Pork Ribs with Garlic, Chilies, and Tomato (from Naples) Pea, Bacon, and Pecorino Salad (from Nice) Amaretto Polenta Pound Cake (from Venice) Rich with great advice on affordable wine gems and recipes for some killer wine cocktails, "Wine Bar Food" has everything you need to make weeknight dinners and gatherings with friends simple, fun, and flavorful affairs.
