The Epicure’s Guide to Bottled Water

     •  Explains the characteristics of bottled waters and how they can be used to create tantalizing food pairings. Glassware and bottled water etiquette is also covered.

     •  Any culinary experience is enhanced by fine bottled water—let Fine Waters show you how.

Synopsis:

Water is indeed everywhereespecially bottled water. High-end restaurants now have water lists in addition to wine lists, water bars are opening up around the globe, and gourmet markets are selling dozens of different varieties of domestic and imported bottled waters. Consumers are beginning to recognize that bottled water, like wine, has a unique identity that is defined by its origin. "Fine Waters" introduces readers to the epicurean delights of water, sharing the ins and outs of the characteristics that provide various waters with their unique flavors, as well as recommended food pairings, stemware suggestions, and optimum serving temperatures for enjoying both still and sparkling waters. The book also provides tasting notes for more than 100 of the world's best bottled waters. Produced in full color, with photographs throughout, "Fine Waters" is the first guide to this up-and-coming food trend.
