    Few wine books can be called classic, but the first edition of THE WORLD ATLAS OF WINE made publishing history when it appeared in 1971. It is recognized by critics as the essential and most authoritative wine reference work available. This eighth edition will bring readers, both old and new, up to date with the world of wine.

    To reflect all the changes in the global wine scene over the past six years, the Atlas has grown in size to 416 pages and 22 new maps have been added to the wealth of superb cartography in the book. The text has been given a complete overhaul to address the topics of most vital interest to today's wine-growers and drinkers.

    With beautiful photography throughout, Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson, the world's most respected wine-writing duo, have once again joined forces to create a classic that no wine lover can afford to be without.

    "THE WORLD ATLAS OF WINE is the single most important reference book on the shelf of any wine student." - Eric Asimov, New York Times

    "The most useful single volume on wine ever published... If I owned only one wine book, it would be this one." - Andrew Jefford, Decanter

    "Like a good bottle of wine, you'll find yourself going back to it again and again... Perfect for anyone who has a thirst for greater wine knowledge." - Edward Deitch, NBC/today.com

    "THE WORLD ATLAS OF WINE belongs on your shelf... The essential rootstock of any true wine lover's library. A multi-layered snapshot of wine and how it has evolved." - Dave McIntyre, Washington Post

    Amidst the olive groves of Jerusalem, the pulsating spice markets of Nazareth and the vineyards of Bethlehem, travel writer and cook Yasmin Khan falls in love with the flavours and fragrances of modern Palestine. Palestinian food is simple, seasonal and predominantly plant-based, bursting with a freshness and brightness that is characteristic of all Levantine cooking. It has evolved over several millennia, through the influences of Arabic, Jewish, Armenian, Persian, Turkish and Bedouin cultures and civilisations that have ruled over, or lived in, the area known as ancient Palestine. From the colourful array of mezze dishes that make use of the region 's bountiful aubergines, peppers, artichokes and green beans; to slow-cooked stews of chicken and lamb flavoured with Palestinian barahat spice blends; to the masterful marriage of citrusy local extra virgin olive oil with earthy za 'atar, served in small bowls to accompany toasted breads, Palestinian food rejoices in satisfying all the senses.

    Yasmin 's journey takes her from the sun-kissed pomegranate stalls of Akka, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, via evergreen oases of date plantations in the Jordan Valley, to the fading fish markets of Gaza city. In each place she visits, Yasmin enters the homes and kitchens of Palestinians of all ages and backgrounds, discovering the secrets of their ancient cuisine and sharing heart-lifting stories. Featuring more than 80 modern recipes that are all fully accessible to the home cook, Zaitoun reveals and revels in the delights of the Palestinian kitchen.
