Wine in Cooking

Question:
Dear James,
Could you please tell me the difference of cooking with regular white wine or sparkling wine?  Is it okay to substitute sparkling wine for regular?  (this is for a poultry recipe).
Thank you,  Vicki

 

Answer:
Hello Vicki,
No real difference using sparkling or regular white wine for your poultry dish.

For sparkling wine, keep in mind that the term 'brut' is a dry sparkling wine, and the term 'dry' refers to a sweeter sparkling wine, and 'sec' or 'demi sec' is the sweetest sparkling wine.

For chicken, either a dry or sweet sparkling wine would work fine with most recipes.

Generally, a dry sparkling wine would work better with red meat than a sweeter one.

Some substitutes for wine in recipes:

    Non-alcoholic wine or beer.
    Chicken, fish or beef stock.
    Vegetable stock.
    Water and a little Balsamic Vinegar.
    Pomegranate juice.
    Grape juice, apple juice, orange juice, etc.
    Carrot juice.
    Syrup from canned fruit.
    Cranberry juice.
    White grape juice and a few drops of lemon juice or sugar, depending on whether a dry wine or a sweet wine is called for.
    Orange juice or orange juice concentrate.
    Coffee, espresso, etc.
    Green tea.
