We all know that fine restaurants not only serve fine wines with their meals but they also cook with them. Even though many wine connoisseurs know this for some reason they are reluctant to try this at home. While for many just finding the perfect accompanying wine for your meal is enough others want to try wine in a whole new way and experiment cooking with their favorite vintages.
An easy way to get started is to choose a favorite red or white wine and pare it with meat of fish for cooking. Of course just as when you are drinking your red wine it is still best to remember to pour them into your wine decanters first to remove the sediment and increase the flavor. Wine is ideal for those who are looking for a more intense, dark flavor from their foods. It can be used either as a marinade for something such as beef or a for creating light sauces for accompanying something such as a seafood dish.
As with most anything there are some excellent recipes online that include wine, which can be easily prepared at home. Experiment with your favorite wines and bring out a new flavor in your foods.
