Why do many cooks marinate meats in wine? A. Wine both flavors and tenderizes meat and poultry. It tends to eliminate the "fishy" taste of fish. Use a glass or porcelain utensil if the marinating will go on for more than an hour; some metals give the food and wine an off-flavor. Q. What about using wine for a flavoring when both adults and children will be served the same food? A. The alcohol in the wine evaporates during cooking, leaving only a subtle, delicious flavoring. By MARTI VOGEL Of the Daily Mail Staff For many brides today, the "something new" they wear in their wedding could well be a dress or veil made by their mother. For a variety of reasons, mothers are contributing literally in a material way. Mrs. Irene Bumgardner of Dogwood Drive said her daughter wanted a plain, off-white wedding dress for her September ceremony. "She didn't even bother to look at dresses because she said she knew she couldn't find one she liked," Mrs. Bumgardner said. The pattern her daughter chose has a square neck and long sleeves which will be unlined. "The material is a polyester that has a texture between satin and crepe," Mrs. Bumgardner said. Though she has sewn for several years, Mrs. Bumgardner said she has never tried a wedding dress. "We didn't have any trouble finding any of the materials," she said. "The lady who' sold us the material said the finished dress would probably sell for about $300." Mrs. Bumgardner said her cost for the dress was about $80. Some women make only the veils for the wedding dress. Mrs. William Crigger of Ranch Road recently completed a headpiece for her daughter's Aug. 2 wedding. "The one that matched her dress looked too heavy, so I made one," she said. Mrs. Crigger said her biggest problem was finding lace, which she finally located in Philadelphia. "There's a demand for that type of thing but no place for a supply," she said. The completed veil cost about $15, Mrs. Crigger said. If she had purchased one, the least amount she would have paid would have been 578. Mrs. George Craddock also made a veil for her daughter because her daughter couldn't find one she liked at a reasonable price. · 'Materials for ihe one I made cost about $12,"said Mrs. Craddock. "If we had bought it. it would have been more like $80." Mrs. Craddock said she found her materials, both lace and illusion, at local stores but that it took a "lot of looking." OKI MM. TILL 9.00P.M.
