This week on the WineGuyMike Radio Show I had the distinct pleasure of hosting award winning author Becky Sue Epstein. As a long- time editor for numerous Wine & Spirit magazine publications Epstein shares her in-depth experience through her newest book Champagne: A Global History.
Epstein began her career as a restaurant reviewer for the Los Angeles Times while working in the TV and Film Industry in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. The last 20 years she has focused her attention on Food, Wine, Spirits, and Travel writing for publications on the East and West Coasts.
Epstein and I had a terrific conversation on the show this week, this author keeps a very busy schedule between travel and research, somehow she finds time to write books. Her award-winning cookbook The American Lighthouse Cookbook (Sourcebooks/Cumberland, co-written with Chef Ed Jackson) came out last year. Epstein’s second book is an entirely new update of the classic kitchen reference Substituting Ingredients (Sourcebooks June 2010) which is already in its third printing.
The latest book, Champagne: A Global History (Reaktion, September 2011) spotlight’s sparkling wines from around the world, a great short read not only for Champagne and sparkling wine lovers but also those who want to learn more about this sexy, luxurious bubbly beverage.
In Epstein’s newest book she hi-lights influential people throughout world history who literally have shaped the face of this effervescent beverage. She also provides readers with the 411 on all things sparkling in your glass. This is important to know because this information empowers the consumer, allowing you to indulge in a budget minded way. That’s right you can enjoy a daily glass of very good bubbly and not exceed you wine budget.
I want to thank Becky Sue Epstein for such an informative, lively, and engaging conversation. I highly recommend this interesting and informative book, Champagne: A Global History. This is a great short read that is only 132 pages in length, yet long on information empowering you as an expert consumer of Champagne and sparkling wine. This book is available at Amazon.com as an ebook or hardcover online at http://amzn.to/NvZpxB Learn more about Becky Sue Epstein at www.BeckySueEpstein.com
