MFOB FEATURED BOOK: Cork Dork: A Wine-Fueled Adventure Among the Obsessive Sommeliers, Big Bottle Hunters, and Rogue Scientists Who Taught Me to Live for Taste
Professional journalist and amateur drinker Bianca Bosker didn’t know much about wine—that is, until she became intoxicated with an alternate universe where taste reigns and elite sommeliers dedicate their lives to the pursuit of flavor. With boundless curiosity, humor, and a healthy dose of skepticism, Bosker takes the reader inside underground tasting groups, exclusive New York City restaurants, California 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? What she learns will change the way you drink wine—and, perhaps, the way you live—forever.
