DAILY DECADENCE: THE ART OF SENSUAL LIVING
By Sherri Dobay
Sherri Dobay feels like a kindred spirit… although young, her romantic, sensual verbiage communicates that “old soul,” the kind of view with which I’ve seen the world since girlhood. Food, wine, art, nature, horses (she’s a rider) are her subject, and she is as inspiring as she is comforting. More memoir than cookbook — and published in a format that’s hard to open while working in the kitchen — the book’s draw is its tone, not its recipes. Sections are grouped around themes of decadence (Divine Decadence, Decadent Simplicity, Decadence of the Seasons, Decadence of Letting Go), and wine recommendations are explored from a right-brain perspective rather than thorough analytical tasting notes. Reading bits of the book at a time is like a sip of crisp, refreshing wine.
From James Laube, Senior Editor, Wine Spectator:
“Anyone who loves life, food, wine, travel and romance will find Daily Decadence irresistible. Sherri Dobay’s brilliant debut book celebrates life the way we should live it–day by day, meal by meal, bite by bite, savoring each sip and exploring the nuances of love and pleasure, no matter where we are.
Join her on the back seat of a motor scooter navigating the narrow roads of the Amalfi Coast, astride a horse cantering along the beach, nestled in front of a roaring fire sipping champagne, or preparing a romantic dinner. Daily Decadence is playful, flirty, sexy and revealing in a way that inspires warmth and comfort.
Once you start reading you won’t be able to put it down.”
Daily Decadence: The Art of Sensual Living will delight you with a combined sense of calm and lusciousness; an ability to observe delight and a conscious effort to invite at least five minutes of celebration into a packed day.
Audrey Wells, Film Director & Screenwriter, Under the Tuscan Sun
“Sherri Dobay has given wine a sex life.”
