Vin-cab-ulary – Cooking with wine

I love to cook and people often ask me about cooking with wine. Rather than speaking from my personal experience I thought I would quote a cooking professional about the issue.  Linda Stradley of What’s Cooking America writes:

The first and most important rule: Use only wines in your cooking that you would drink. Never, never use any wine that you WOULD NOT DRINK! If your do not like the taste of a wine, you will not like the dish you choose to use it in.

An expensive wine is not necessary, although a cheap wine will not bring out the best characteristics of your dish. A good quality wine, that you enjoy, will provide the same flavor to a dish as a premium wine. Save the premium wine to serve with the meal.”
