The Martini Companion
by: Gary Regan and Mardee Haidin Regan
Running Press Book Publishers
Another great book by Gary and Mardee Regan.
This book represents a great deal of research on their part in order to provide us with some exciting information about the Martini. It includes one of the best, and most complete, writeups on the history of the Martini, as well as good solid background information about the importance and production of Gin, Vermouth, and Vodka.
In the back of the book, they include recipes for 52 variations on the Martini, some classic, some original, and many gathered from famous restaurants across the country.
Be prepared to sit down and read this book from front to back. With of course a nice cold pitcher of Martini's at your side.
