Corker: A Deeply Unserious Wine Book

Who’s the author? Hannah Crosbie is a wine writer, broadcaster, and founder of Dalston Wine Club, an events series making the world of wine more relaxing and approachable for younger audiences. She also co-hosts the podcast I’ll Have What She’s Having with chef Sophie Wyburd, makes regular appearances on Sunday Brunch as the show’s resident wine expert, and has worked with brands and publications including Mob Kitchen, Soho House, Decanter, and FRIEZE.

What’s it about? Forget stuffy rules about which white goes with fish, or which red goes with a steak – Corker is a different kind of guide to wine pairings, where the recommendations revolve around the occasion you’re celebrating rather than the food you’re eating.

Whether you’re on a date that’s going well (or not), meeting your in-laws for the first time, shivering your way through a British “summer” picnic, getting divorced, or heading off to a dinner party full of wine snobs, Hannah’s recommendations for the perfect pairing are packed with practical advice, wit, and personality.

Perfect for: Wine novices who want to know which keywords to look for in the supermarket, wine enthusiasts seeking fresh inspiration, or anyone in search of the perfect bottle for any occasion.
