MugZ77 Posted October 2, 2006 Share Posted October 2, 2006 My girlfriend, who is in the WSET Diploma program, was hoping to get her hands quickly on a copy of the World Encyclopedia of Champagne and Sparkling Wine as part of her studies. We drove from bookstore to bookstore (various B&Ns and Borders, among others) in and around the District, but we had no luck finding it. Ultimately, she folded and ordered it from amazon.com. But the whole experience got me thinking that I can't come up with the name of a single food/wine specialty bookstore in the area. Certainly, there's nothing along the lines of Barbara-Jo's Books to Cooks in Vancouver, B.C., and we don't have anything like Portland's Powell's Books, which might carry what you want solely by virtue of its size. Is ordering on the Web the only way to go in these parts? Are there used bookstores around here that carry a decent selection of food and wine books -- at least a selection larger than what you'd find at the typical major chain bookstore? Any wine shops or food emporia (e.g., Dean & Deluca) that do an adequate job? Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
