No respectable chef would ever allow his or her kitchen to run
out of wine for cooking. Wine is an integral part of French and
Chinese cooking, and is also the basis for good marinating and
barbeques. It finds good company in the kitchen with vinegar,
fish paste, and soy sauce which all lend a tangy flavor to all
sorts of dishes.
Many are tentative to using wine in because of the many
questions they may have. Here are a few answers to the questions
that most people want to know when using wine in cooking.
1. Does wine quality affect your cooking?
Whether you use normal wine or a quality wine for your cooking
doesn't make a difference in the flavor of your dishes. Save
your quality wine instead for sipping and use the regular wine
2. I'm worried about whether the wine can make me or my kids

evaporates at 172 degrees. Also you will never add too much wine
to any dish, so it is very unlikely that any wine fortified dish
can make you tipsy. This allows anyone - even those that do not

3. I'm afraid I might put too much wine in my dishes. Will it
ruin its flavor?

then be able to add or lessen the wine you use for a certain
Make sure you allow the wine to cook a bit before adding more to
a dish. It usually takes 10 minutes for it to exhibit its full
flavor. Less is more when initially experimenting with wine.
4. What is the difference between wine and regular wine?
Cooking wine has salt and chemicals added which make them unfit
for drinking. While it is reported to be better for cooking, you
will want to steer clear of using this unless the recipe
specifically calls for it. This will probably be done most often
in Chinese recipes.
