 Micky -


  • This section includes wine and champagne. For Vermouth, Sherry, Port, Marsala and Madeira visit the fortified wine section

  • If you can't drink it - don't use it in cooking

  • Where possible use the same wine in the recipe as you will be drinking with the meal

  •  Add a splash of the original alcohol to soups, stews, sauces and casseroles just before serving to reinforce the flavour

  • Freeze leftover wine in ice cube trays for adding to stocks, soups and gravies

  • Buy  bottles of wines and keep in your store cupboard for use in the kitchen

  • Because alcohol freezes at a lower temperature to other liquids, excessive use in frozen desserts is not advisable


Below are just a few of the hundreds of recipes on this site using wines.
