With the newly published book—Wine, Cheese & Soup: Pairing Menus, Tasting Guides & History Notes for Deliciously Entertaining Feasts by Judy Kirkland—cooks and even non-cooks can serve spectacular (but easy) menus—starters to dessert—that pair a specific cheese with the perfect California red wine.

For people who love food and wine, The LiveWell Institute announces a beautiful new book with over 100 full-color photos: Wine, Cheese & Soup—Pairing Menus, Tasting Guides & History Notes for Deliciously Entertaining Feasts by Judy Kirkland.

Publisher Susan Weaver adds, "It's a perfect guide for planning dinner parties. The thinking is all done. Plus, tasting notes and short histories make for interesting dinnertime conversation as both hosts and guests master the characteristics of the cheese and wine."
