Cooking with Wine

Cooking with wine 🍷 🥩

When you take some of the fat out of dishes, you usually need to add another ingredient to replace the lost moisture.

•Wine can help cook and simmer foods
•Wine helps cook and add flavor to fish
•Wine is a great ingredient in marinades
•Wine can be used in baking, too

Here are some examples of how wine can do just that:

1. Instead of sauteing veggies in heaps of butter or oil, you can saute them in a smaller amount of oil plus some wine for flavor and moisture.

2. Instead of making a marinade with 1/2 cup of oil, decrease the oil to 1/4 cup and add 1/4 cup wine.

3. Instead of adding 3/4 cup of oil to a cake mix recipe, add 3/4 cup of white or dessert wine to the batter.

Red dinner wines go well with hearty or highly seasoned foods, such as beef, pork, game, duck, goose, and pasta dishes, while white dinner wines tend to work with dishes containing chicken, turkey, fish, shellfish, ham, and veal

Feel free to experiment while cooking or baking with wine. Get creative, and try to invent new flavor combinations. ****
