Both of our kids are learning to cook with wine. The fundamentals of a good wine sauce or a reduction is going to make them that much of a better cook as they get older. Understanding things like why wine is good to break down meat because of the acidity helps them learn some of the science behind it.
One of the first meals my kids learned how to make with wine was risotto. It is simple, affordable and with the addition of wine makes it a little more decadent.
What do you cook with red wine?
You can make everything from soups, stews, rice, pasta, to many meat and seafood dishes.
What red wine is good for cooking?
A good quality red wine is better for cooking. I always recommend cooking with a wine that you would have no problem drinking. If it is not good enough to drink, do not add it to your food. Oftentimes when cooking bad wine the heat can intensify the bad taste.
