Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Two-Lane Gourmet is the first wine-and-cuisine guide to sample top estate vineyards, intriguing inns, and intimate dining in all three West Coast states, from Southern California to Washington.

Come along with bestselling author Tom Snyder on a delightful tour of more than two thousand miles of breathtaking wine country roads to enjoy hundreds of handcrafted wines, unique entrées, and gracious inns---all waiting for you to discover and appreciate them to the fullest. You'll never be at loss for words---a primer on winetasting is included, along with a pronounciation guide to popular wines. Suggestions for food-and-wine pairings, together with sources for recipes created by blue-label chefs from Europe and America, are also covered.

So find a region in the contents that calls to you and set out on a grand tour of your own. Swirl, sip, choose from an astonishing variety of dishes, and doze off on 700-count Italian linen sheets while vineyards rustle in the night breeze just below your balcony.

Ready to unwind a bit? It's all here, waiting for you, in The Two-Lane Gourmet. Lovely drives, good friends, fine wine, amiable conversation---this book is your passport.

About the Author

As a leader in back-road touring, Tom Snyder's labor of love with fabled Route 66 has led more than a quarter million travelers to rediscover the grand old highway, its towns, and its people. Tom has lived and traveled throughout California and the Pacific Northwest for much of his life. Along the way, he has worked as an oil-field swamper, a short-order cook, a sailing coach, and the director of a nationwide program for children with special needs. A lapsed pilot and semiprudent motorcyclist, Tom acknowledges a genetic weakness for open spaces and quick machines.
