I'm rereading Craig Claiborne's autobiography, "A Feast Made for Laughter," (also has his top favorite 100 recipes). I read it years ago when it first came out (1982). Not sure what prompted me to pick it up again, but it's very interesting. He writes well, and lived a very interesting life -- right at the beginning of "Great American Food."
As well, his writing partner, Pierre Franey, was one of my esteemed mentors and teachers.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.
