Each section (highlighting a different food or drink) had an overview of the traditions, processing, and preparations associated with each set of items.

I used this book as a guide to help me host a chocolate tasting party. I love the premise and the party was a success! There are also tips for wine, cheese, and olive oil tastings.

Recommends it for: Those looking to try "deep tasting" foods
This book is the basis of one of the food events I host for my cooking group. We'll be using the book as a guide and branching out to other foods to deep taste.

This isn't really a cookbook, but a guide to refining your taste by hosting "tasting events" with friends --well written and fun to read.
