You might find this information on Rice Wine of some help.

Wine and vinegar are NOT the same thing. Vinegar is what you get when good wine goes bad! They taste nothing alike. Take a sip of a dry red wine and a sip of red wine vinegar and you'll get the idea.

As for the discrepancy between the recipe shown on the screen and what the presenter said - I would go with the recipe.

The reason I asked what you are making is that you might be able to leave it out entirely rather than run all over the place. But it depends on how the rice wine is used.

I would NOT suggest the chard if it's an oaky/buttery one (eg, most CA chards). IMO that would not be good in any asian dish.

ditto on the chard - especially an oaky chard like jennyema said. It would be nice if you would give us a quick description of the recipe - like she said it might not matter if it's left out versus the wrong thing being substituted.

Hi everyone,

Here's the recipe

I was able to get into town last night and picked up a bottle of sake - Gekkeikan Sake.

I'm planning to try the recipe later today so I'll let you all know how I get on with the sake.

Thanks for all the replies again

JB

I've only used this for Chinese cooking.

Hi everyone,

Just tried the recipe with sake and it was fine. I was a bit disappointed with the recipe but I'm sure that was more to do with my cooking skills rather than using sake in stead of rice wine!

Many thanks for all your help with this.

Cheers JB
