The Independent's 2017 Book of the Year and a 2020 London Eater recommended read for lockdown 'If Malcolm Gladwell were to write a book about wine, the results wouldn't linger much more pleasurably on the palate than this accessible, adventurous, amusing and informative book by Bianca Bosker' - The Times Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn't know much about wine - until she discovered the world of elite sommeliers who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavour. Fascinated by their fervour and seemingly superhuman sensory powers, she set out to uncover what drove their obsession, and whether she, too, could become a 'cork dork.' With boundless curiosity, humour and a healthy dose of scepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, mass-market wine factories and even a neuroscientist's fMRI machine as she attempts to answer the most nagging question of all: what's the big deal about wine? Funny, counterintuitive and compulsively readable, Cork Dork does for drinking what Kitchen Confidential did for dining out, ensuring you'll never reach blindly for the second cheapest bottle on the menu again.

  1. Bra bok, helt enkelt

    När jag köpte boken förväntade jag mig underhållning, men att boken dessutom gav mig så mycket insikter, inte bara i vinkunskap och sommelieryrkets hemligheter, utan även i rent vetenskapliga ämnen, hade jag inte räknat med.

Accessible, adventurous, amusing and informative * The Times * Perhaps the most purely pleasurable book about wine ever written, this account of Bianca Bosker's journey from clueless wine boor to certifiable wine bore is everything wine writing so seldom is: nimble, self-aware, funny. -- George Reynolds * Eater London * Bosker's journey into this sodden universe is thrilling, and she tells her story with gonzo lan. * New York Times * Remarkably entertaining. Bosker is a talented writer, a thorough reporter and is unfailingly funny. * San Francisco Chronicle * such a good story, so brilliantly written...Make this the first book you buy in 2018. YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK. * * A marvelous journey through the mad, manic, seductive subculture of wine and wine lovers. * Susan Orlean * I loved this book. It's not just about wine. It's about learning how to listen to your senses, to more deeply experience and appreciate the world around you, and everyone could use another glass of that. * Mary Roach * A brilliant feat of screwball participatory journalism. * Jay McInerney * excellent -- Martin Moran * The Sunday Times Ireland *
