Great wine isn’t just for sipping. Cooking with wine can make any dish delicious – whether you cork a bottle to marinade meat, simmer ingredients or concoct a special sauce to top off a meal.
Dry white wines can add vinegary acidity to mild foods like fish, while tannin-rich red wines can add depth to hearty meats like steak. Typically, wine should match the rest of the meal in color, weight and flavor – but sometimes, contrasting tastes can be just as delightful.
