This Friday on the Gourmet Club...

It's all about wine on Friday's show. We're going to have two very interesting guests to talk about the art and science of pairing food and wine.

Natalie MacLean, author of Red, White and Drunk All Over, has a really helpful wine-and-food matcher on her website that not only offers suggestions for the type of wine, but even specific wines that work with a particular dish. MacLean has won four James Beard Foundation Journalism Awards for her writing on drinks, including the MFK Fisher Distinguished Writing Award, in memory of one of America's greatest food writers.

John Alonge, co-owner of the San Diego Wine & Culinary Center, will be with us in studio for the entire show. Located downtown, across from the Convention Center at 200 Harbor Drive, Suite 120, the Center holds tastings for the public five days a week (including Wednesday night K-9's-N-Wine for dog owners and their pups), offers cooking classes and special events. We'll learn all about the Center and local wines from Alonge.

Tune in to the Gourmet Club with Ron James, Robert Whitley and me on Friday, Feb. 22 from 1 to 2 p.m. at or podcast the show and listen at your convenience!
