Re: Need help- red wine for cooking

only cook with wine you enjoy drinking. just use your favorite red. you should be able to find a very nice bottle in the 8-12 chf range.

All the Coop shops sell a bottle of red wine from Spain with a yellow screw cap. Santa Augusta, Jumella, Valencia. Very cheap, about CHF 3,-- and is quite drinkable. It has a white and yellow "artistic" label and is bottled for Coop.

Re: Need help- red wine for cooking

When cooking with wine it makes little sense to use a really expensive wine....alcohol will evaporate with the heat leaving the taste of the wine behind.

My suggestion when cooking with wine is not to use strong heat, cook slowly over low heat and do not add the wine from the beginning unless you are cooking something with red meat. And if you are cooking something that can be eaten cold, the wine taste will be felt more if you do not eat it straightaway... of course not possible with all dishes... but lasagna with red wine tastes great after some hours that if has been cooked

Re: Need help- red wine for cooking

I agree with "ABear" above.. never cook with any wine you wouldn't drink
and I always use this in my cooking...
