KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled: The Ways to Make Them, Together with Some Lore, Reminiscences and Wise Advice for Enjoying Them. This- with over 75 line drawings, provides a gift book for that hard-to-please epicure. But for the average citizen, this reader wonders at the assumption that the art of wine making carries over into an urge to go and do likewise. But for those who have this urge-whether, says the author, city or country dweller -- the recipes are here, arranged alphabetically under specific fruits, vegetables and flowers, cereals, herbs, nuts. Wines are not all; brandies, liqueurs and cordials are here too, along with offbeat national drinks such as ""bumps""- ""negus""- ""thandai"" and ""usquebaugh"". If this avocation is down your alley, this reader assures you that all you need to know is here.
