    i have 2 questions about wine.

    1. can i find a decent/good wine
    at the grocery store?

    2. have you ever cooked food with wine?
    if so, what kind and what were the results?


    ok, thats like almost 4.

    i cooked some chicken with wine
    2 nights ago, and it came out
    pretty good. i was at the store looking
    for some wine, but i dont know wines
    too well. so, i went for what i knew.
    i got one of them huge jugs of rossi.
    i use most of it to boil my chicken.
    the rest of it went in my belly.
    then i slapped some bbq sauce on them
    breasts and grilled em real quick...

    :yum:

    i don't know much about wine myself, but i know don't use cooking wine. Chefs say, if its not good enough to drink, its not good enough to cook with.

    white wine - chicken/ fish
    red wine - beef

    red wine has a fuller (for lack of a better word) flavor, so i think it would go better with red meat, while white wine is more delicate so poaching or sauteeing in white wine may go better with fish.

    champagne and oj is great though!

    you know how people say red wine with red meat
    and white wine with fish, chicken etc.

    well that rule should go out the window.
    It doesn't apply so much if the wine is good.

    ^^^

    true, but i was talking about cooking with it. and of course, if it tastes good just do it the way you like it. it just seems like thats a good guideline to follow.
    but who knows, cooking isn't my baliwick. (thats the word of the day)

    um, well im a chef and although i do not drink anymore because of my religion, i have drunk some good wine.
    to your first question: i personally have never really found any good wines in any grocery stores that i have been to. liquor stores man, liquor stores, thats the only place to go;.

    to your second question:the MOST IMPORTANT thing to remember about cooking with wine is to USE WINE THAT YOU WOULD DRINK that you think is good. the whole rule about white/fish, red for beef does not reall yapply anymore since there are just so many ways you can use wine.

    so ya use wine you think is good to u, never use cooking wine from a place like safeway, etc. etc.



    peace

    you can also use white wine for such thinks as venison (we use that a lot in the restaurant) and a lot of prok/gamey meats.

    *believe*

    agreed, mimosas are great!
    i had a champange brunch
    the other day at el torito...mmm.

    i used carlo rossi-sangria.
    thats the best tasting one.
    its red, but i used it anyway.
    the chicken was purple on the
    outside, and white on the inside.
    it tasted good. i know im supposed
    to use white wine, but i thought
    i would try red...

    :eek:

    i also used it for some beef, came
    out super good. i threw mushrooms
    in there, and they had a good flavor.
    very juicy too.

    my land lady used carlo rossi-rhine.
    she said that gives it good flavor.
    i havent used cooking wine yet,
    but i dont think i will after hearing the
    comments posted. ill stick to drinking
    wine. i like drinking it while im cooking.

    :dazed:

    do you guys got any brand names?
    i like merlot, i dont like white wines
    too much. i want to try some pinot noir.
    i like sweet tasting wines, i just
    dont know the brand that have them.
    there are so many.

    thanks folks

    yeah, beer is underrated for cooking with. make a beer marinade for steaks, that would be tasty. use a dark beer like newcastle

    damn. i know what i'm going to do today.
    experimental marinade making 101!
