Menus and Music

There’s nothing quite like a good meal to go with some fine jazz, although some would reverse that statement. Regardless, Sharon O’Connor takes advantage of the aesthetic synergy in the 16th and latest volume of her “Menus and Music” series, Tasting the Wine Country.

This series combines cookbooks and compact discs; the cookbook features recipes from some of America’s finest inns and resorts, adapted by O’Connor for home cookers, while the accompanying disc features the Mike Marshall Quintet playing jazz, bluegrass, Latin and classical music. In addition, the cookbook features reverent writing about American winemaking and wines, suggesting the perfect complement to the food and music.
