Bianca Bosker in Conversation With Karen Brooks

Amateur drinker and professional tech reporter Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine – until she stumbled on an alternate universe of master sommeliers who could, after a single sip, identify the grape a bottle was made from, in what year, and where it was produced, within acres. Astounded by their fanatical dedication and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, Bosker set out to discover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a "cork dork" Counterintuitive, compulsively readable, and hilarious, Cork Dork (Penguin) illuminates how tasting better can help us live better – and will change the way you drink wine forever. Bosker will be joined in conversation by Karen Brooks, Portland Monthly food critic and author of The Mighty Gastropolis: Portland.
