Tasting Chile contains 140 traditional recipes from home chefs and restaurants from across this South American country, spanning a variety of dishes that ranges from spicy salsas and hearty soups to the ubiquitous empanada and desserts such as sweet cream crepes. It includes fairly standard and simple recipes like Chilean roast chicken and rice, as well as more complex and exotic ones like rhubarb mousse, blood sausage, stuffed meat (you literally have to sew the meat shut), and fried frogs' legs.
tasting Chile puts the native cuisine in perspective by describing its essential ingredients and the influences other countries and cultures have had upon it. It also describes the unique experience of dining in Chile, which has some foods seldom seen elsewhere, while at the same time it provides readers with substitutes for Chilean foods so that they can easily make all of the book's recipes in their home.
In addition to recommendations for pairing wines with main courses, a special section on wine offers an overview of the wines of Chile, including the names and addresses of Chilean wine companies and the availability of their products in the United States.
Host your own wine pairing dinner at home and invite some friends. It'll be a more casual, relaxed environment than a restaurant wine pairing dinner, and you and your guests can enjoy learning about the wine together- instead of from an (often) snobby sommelier. Go to a local wine shop and ask for help with a few pairings. They are usually more than happy to help you if you commit to buying a few bottles. Make sure to ask for any literature or information they have on the wine that you can share with your guests.
