Dear Wine Ladies,
I usually use my left over, over the hill wine for cooking. Not exactly a gastronomic I’ve never noticed any ill affects of this, but my significant other feels differently. What’s wrong with using an old wine for cooking? It’s not like you can tell the difference.
Apparently your significant other can, and with good reason. Bad wine will ruin a dish just as any other bad or rotten ingredient would. If a wine is not good enough to enjoy with a meal it’s not good enough to use in the preparation of a meal. Use only healthy, fresh wine for cooking and your recipe and your significant other will thank you. It doesn’t have to be pricey, just sound.
