Margrit Mondavi’s Sketchbook

Margrit Mondavi, wife of late wine legend Robert Mondavi, is a culinary force in her own right. She has spent her life around star chefs, exquisite restaurants and exceptional food and wine. Unsurprisingly, she has a number of stories to tell. Her memoir, Margrit Mondavi’s Sketchbook: Reflections on Wine, Food, Art, Family, Romance and Life ($35), is a whimsical collection of drawings, recipes and reminiscences. She writes about her favorite dishes, like roasted-red-pepper soup and baked salmon with cherry tomatoes and fennel, but the book is far more than a cookbook—it’s a testament to the pleasures of a life well lived. robertmondaviwinery.com.
