A section of the Trieste catalogue is devoted to wine. Our books focus on the technology of wine production, its proper storage, collections and best exhibits. Wine is an alcoholic beverage (strength: natural - 9-16% vol., Fortified - 16-22% vol.) obtained by full or partial alcoholic fermentation of grape juice (sometimes with the addition of alcohol and other substances - the so-called "fortified wine") while the science of wine is enology.
Cooking is a set of methods for preparing the various foods necessary for life and human health from minerals and products of plant and animal origin. Cooking methods and the ingredients themselves vary widely among different countries, peoples and social groups. These different cuisines reflect the unique interconnections of culture, economy and traditions.
Cooking itself is highly dependent on both the skill and talent of the cook. To prepare tasty and healthy food, it is necessary to acquire certain knowledge of technology and skills in the culinary art of cooking.
