I've never cooked with wine. The recipe did not say "cooking wine". It just says: "1 cup of white wine"

I would be lost as it relates to which kind/brand to select.

Any assistance would be helpful.



Thanks

Um, can you put a link to the recipe or tell us what sauce you're making, etc?

Something dry; sauvignon blanc is a good choice.

For me, I usually choose whatever's open.

Never use "cooking wine" in a recipe like this, and certainly not in such a quantity. Cooking wine is full of salt and would completely destroy the dish.

I use dry vermouth instead of wine for cooking. I don't drink wine and it goes off quickly once it's opened. Vermouth is "fortified" so it lasts much longer and I have it on hand for martinis anyway ...

I am more inclined to go with the idea of Vermouth, it has more flavor but if you want to follow the recipe to the tee, then any drry, white wine. You do not have to go expensive, but stay away from cooking wine.

I go with what I have open in the fridge....usually some Chardonnay. I also usually have a bottle of sake open and it is a nice dry white wine and it is often used in cooking. Some times I use white vermouth or even sherry.....but your recipe calls for a cup and the sherry might be overwhelming to other ingredients.

I second the recommendation above that you absolutely dont want to use the "cooking wine" sold near the fancy vinegars....balsamic etc. It is cheap wine highly salted and seasoned.....you really dont need that.

The best rule of thumb is not to cook with a wine your wouldn't drink....it doesn't improve with cooking. You don't need an expensive wine ..... probably one of the wines they sell in the supermarket....2 for $10 would be fine. I think "Flip-Flops" is one of those brands.
