The Little Book of Champagne Tips by Andrew Langley
Reviewed by Jason Koivu
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I found this coffee table book on top of a tv, so at first I didn't know what to do with it, it being out of its element and me being currently drunk on tacos.
Once I got the reading underway, I found this a quite enjoyable, light and informative slip of a book on the bubbly, aka Champagne.
I'm no expert on the stuff. Wines in general are not my strong suit, but even I knew quite a bit of what's between the soft covers of The Little Book of Champagne Tips. Then again, many a page found me exclaiming, "Oh really?" and "The hell you say!".
Slim, yes, and even so, half the pages are just numbers, by which I mean the page number (ALL BIG LIKE THIS 42) is on the left and the text is on the right, thus doubling the book's page total. Cheap, yes, but this is just a coffee table book, after all.
