A long time ago, some unknown benefactor of the human race performed a daring experiment in cooking which has made mealtime a happier occasion for many of us. He discovered cooking with wine. The character of wine changes as it is subjected to heat. First, thef alcohol, which has a low boiling point, passes off as a vapor. Then, the other elements of the wine undergo varying changes depending on whether the wine is merely heated, brought to a boil, or sizzled at a high temperature. There has been renewed interest in this matter of cooking with wine during the last few years. The enjoyment of good eating is a favorite mid-American sport and wine offers one of the simplest and most effective means of making good food taste differently better. Wine used in cooking is a flavoring. It also is a blender of flavors. It accents the savoriness of the food and lends both aroma and smoothness.
