  Cooking with Wine  
When most people think about cooking with wine, they think about things like cooking Sherry that you find in the grocery store, but in reality most people who cook with wine cook with the real thing. Many ethnic groups including Italians, Hispanics and many others use wine in their cooking to enhance their flavor. Some people have added a small amount of Italian red wine to their deviled egg mixture. There are many different ways you can use wine without even drinking it, much like our grandparents used to add rum to applesauce cake to keep it moist and fresh throughout the holidays.

If you search you will find many recipes for cooking with wine, but there is no reason to invest in a new cookbook. All you have to do is begin practicing and experimenting by adding a little bit of wine to some of your recipes, especially meat and casseroles. If you add wine to fish remember the rule about avoiding any wine with tannins if you use red win. One of the most common places to add wine is in recipes containing tomato sauce such as spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce and marinara sauce. You can also hand it when you are cooking red meats such as beef or steak to enhance the flavour.

When cooking with wine you want to be careful of how much you use, especially if you will be serving the food to children. While a small amount of wine in food is not likely to cause any ill effects, depending on the age of the child, larger amounts might have detrimental effects. Itís important to understand how much wine is safe for all family members and where you have to be economical because children will also be eating what you prepare. There is very little wine necessary to enhance the flavor of the food so do not go crazy with the wine bottle think more is better.

When you are cooking with wine, also be mindful of anyone who is not able to consume alcohol such as those on special medications or recovering alcoholics. Though the small amount of wine you use may in cooking may not cause a problem, make sure you ask before you add wine to anything you cook. If anyone has a problem, set out a portion for that person before you add any wine to the recipe.
