“The theory is to cook with the same wine that you’re drinking but I never do. Don’t spend more than $15 on a wine you plan on just cooking with.” I don’t usually argue with the cook but my husband is known from time to time to toss his own coveted wine, from his glass, into a dish just to keep the guests entertained. Red Wine – use White Zinfandel as Marsala Wine can be too sweet for Chicken. White Wine – Fume Blanc which is a little lighter than a chardonnay for Clam and Shrimp meals.
