This innovative food-and-drink-pairing app is based on what has been described as “the world’s greatest book on the subject.” What to Drink with What You Eat by James Beard Award-winning authors Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page is also the world’s most trusted pairing book, having been named the Georges Duboeuf “Wine Book of the Year” and the IACP “Cookbook of the Year,” in addition to winning the Gourmand World Cookbook award. Based on input from sommeliers and chefs at America’s best restaurants (from Alinea to Daniel), these recommended pairings are now available “to go,” allowing you to enter any food (cuisine, dish, or ingredient) or drink (wine, beer, spirit, coffee, tea, or water) and to discover its ideal matches. Whether you’re at a restaurant, in a wine store, or in the supermarket, get perfect pairings every time, bookmark your favorites, and share them with your friends with this indispensable app.



  • Great App

    By Universaldogstar
    Great reference with a friendly user interface.
  • This app has potential!

    By pkwilde
    1) Navigationally, I’d like to have the app go back to the specific food or wine I was searching and left off from rather than returning o the start of the alphabetized food or wine list. 2) It would be so helpful to have some tasting notes under each drink. In other words, body, acidity, sweetness, tannins, etc. Keep up the good work!
  • Yay!

    I love the book, and I was hoping an app would be made. Interface seems a bit primitive, but the info the app provides is worth it!
  • No back button?

    By Need an Updated Version!
    The "Help" menu says there is a back button to return to the previous step, but this is untrue; sometimes the back button appears, but many times it does not. For instance, from the HOME screen, when I searched for and then clicked on TUNA, raw and OLIVES, ESP. GREEN, no back button appeared. GLITCH!!! Also, the magnified version is very blurry. App Maker: Give us a back button that works all the time! Make it bigger! If these corrections are made, this would be an excellent app!
  • Excellent App

    Finally, an app that is just as great as their book!
  • A good start

    By I'm John
    I love the book! This app is a good start but I find it a bit clunky, constantly having to go back to search. The search field should be locked. If I'm in a food item I should be able to search in that item or the whole app without having to go back each time. I'd LOVE to see an iPad version bc the iBook is very slow for searching.
  • My favorite wine pairing book is now an App!

    By Matushka Susan
    This book has stayed near my dining room table for several years, and has been gifted to friends and family members on several occasions. I was delighted, after receiving the gift of an iPhone, to find the app here. In short, it functions well and is loaded with informative pairings. While these are weighted towards wine pairings, there are also pairings for coffee, tea, water and whisky. Of all the wine apps I have tried (on this phone, but also several years of itouch use), this is the only app I continue to use. Highly recommended!
  • So useful!

    By Luella Harter
    Grabbed this in advance of a holiday party to guide my wine and beer buying choices, it was fabulous. Very easy to navigate and read. I love how they include plenty of non-alcoholic options, too.
  • Most useful reference for food and wine pairings

    By sonsofsound
    I've used this book at home on a daily basis, and am now enjoying the flexibility to refer to it from restaurants, wine shops, and food markets. If you drink and eat at the same time and care about maximizing the experience, this book and app are brilliant.
