Fish & Seafood has recipes for Moules Mariniéres with Muscadet, Fine Wine Fish Pie, and Cioppino Fish Stew. Meat and Chicken features a classic Coq Au Vin and a delicious Duck Casserole with Red Wine, Cinnamon, and Olives. Try some of the surprisingly good recipes in the Vegetable Dishes and Pulses/Legumes section such as Caponata and Chestnut Mushroom and Madeira Tarts.
