I have a decorative ceramic tile given to me by an all-knowing friend: "I love to cook with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food!" I'm with Alix - I like Pinot Grigio both for drinking and cooking (I'll often share a glass with the food).

I'm with GB except I keep a box of Chardonnay AND Burgundy right beside my cooktop. No air gets into the boxed wines so they stay very fresh for a very long time. Just reach up and get whatever you want. I am more apt to add wine because it is right there - and some pan browned chicken pieces with wine, rosemary, lemon zest, caper berries, kalamata olives, and chopped tomatoes is a good example. I add it to my spaghetti sauce and much, much more because it is so handy.

Too heck with the stock pot and microwave..........fork over them wooden spoons.....I collect them :)

I'll def. avoid the zinfandel for cooking. I'll won't rule out the boxed wines either.....will give those a try.

Thanks everyone!

Sizz - I've tried several - Burgundy seems to give me the depth of flavor that I want and Chardonnay gives me the dryness that I want - and this would be in reference to a Cab or a Chablis - though I'm not too picky (maybe it's just what I like to drink). It amazing how long those bottles last and it is amazing how many times you will be making something and you see the wines staring at you saying "please use me"!!!!

Hey, those wooden spoons are mine!!! lol

KE thanks for sharing the photo, I loved it!

The wines in boxes are a great idea... Next time I buy cooking wine that will be my choice. It will save room in the fridge too.
