So you`ve made the decision to add wine to your cooking. But which wine to use? How do you know which wine to choose when adding wine to your favorite recipe?
Generally speaking, adding red wine will create a rich, rustic flavor, while adding white wine will give your recipes a more tropical flair. You`ll be delighted with the robust and fruity flavor wine adds to your favorite dishes!
Wine can be added when preparing to soups, stews, sauces, even risotto and pasta dishes. Wine can be used as a marinade for meats and poultry, adding extra flavor while tenderizing.
The first and most important rule of thumb is: cook only with a wine you would drink. In other words, if the wine is ok to drink, it`s ok to cook with.
The wine to avoid is so-called cooking wine located in the supermarket near the vinegar. Using vinegar is just as effective.
So when you want to perk up a meal, add a splash of wine-it works every time!
