Some people cook with wine because they know that as an acidic ingredient it makes magic out of marinades and sauces as the alcohol evaporates and the flavour lingers. Boiling down or simmering a dish with wine concentrates the flavours to really showcase the other ingredients. Others cook with wine because they simply cannot drink the bottle on their own. How would that look? #DrunkChef.
