Pairing wine with food may seem difficult and expensive but lifestyle writer Stephanie Zubiri-Crespi proves that you don't need a pricey bottle of wine to get the best meal.

In her book “Feast with Me,” Zubiri-Crespi provides wine pairings for a whole set of menu instead of pairing wine with certain food.

"The idea was more or less the flavors you’ll be having with that menu and these are the wines that could pair interchangeably with all those flavors," she said in an interview on ANC's Headstart.

For those worrying about finding the right wine and the price tag, Zubiri-Crespi provides a wine guide in the book and notes that decent prices of wine are within the range of P400-P1,000.

The book contains recipes, table settings, and wine pairings that are inspired by Zubiri-Crespi's travels.

"Each chapter is a destination. It’s an experience with a personal travel story," she said.
