Working on EAT & DRINK book 4

Marcus and I have been busy over the past couple months recipe testing and wine pairing and tasting for EAT & DRINK in the Northwest book 4. Things are finally starting to come together, albeit the IFBC, switching jobs and moving all within the same couple months. The Northwest wines being celebrated in this next book are some of the best! Perhaps with this book more than others, I am thinking of the ingredients in each dish that will pair well with wine, rather than ingredients first- wine pairing second. Perhaps it's just my awareness and development of my palate over this year-long EAT & DRINK writing experience or the evolution in how I am thinking and writing recipes now. Here are the list of recipes that will be in the next book!

  1. Warm Chicken Panini With Lemon Feta, Grilled Zucchini And Peppadew Dressing
