Wine is not just a beverage with dinner but also a key ingredient in dinner. In addition to alcohol, wine also contains compounds that enhance the flavor of cooked dishes.

How Does Wine Make it Better?

It's not so much that alcohol adds flavor to dishes as it is that it enhances the taste of other ingredients. Alcohol helps release flavor molecules in foods and dissolves fats, allowing ingredients to exhibit their own unique flavor in ways that other liquids (such as water or broth) or fats (such as butter and olive oil) cannot.

Be sure to let the wine cook off completely before adding it to a sauce. Otherwise, it may end up tasting harsh and slightly boozy. How to know when enough is enough, though? Add the wine and cook uncovered until the sauce is reduced by about half. As the alcohol burns away, the sauce's flavor concentrates, making it more delicious.

The right wine brings out flavors in all kinds of foods, so after knowing a few guidelines about how and when to use it, one can reach for a little wine like they do lemon juice or vinegar.

The recipe below is one of the most popular ways to cook with wine, which is both simple and delicious.

Baking can also be done with wine! The use of wine or sherry in place of some of the fat in certain types of cakes not only lightens up the cake but also enhances its flavor.



1. 1 sheet gelatin

2. 6 oz cream cheese

3. 1/4 cup sugar

4. 2 tbsp lemon juice

5. 1 cup heavy cream

6. 1/2 cup white wine


1. 1/2 cup white wine

2. 2 1/2 tbsp sugar

3. 1 sheet gelatin

4. White grapes halved

5. Red grapes halved

6. White chocolate, melted



1. After 5 minutes of blooming in cold water, remove the gelatin leaves. Cream cheese, sugar, and lemon juice should be mixed until smooth in a large bowl. Pour in heavy cream and whisk until slightly thickened.

2. Then, remove half of the wine from the heat, add the bloomed gelatin and stir to combine, stirring until there is no more visible gelatin in the mixture. Mix in the other half of the wine to the cheesecake mixture and stir to combine.

3. Place the tart in the refrigerator for at least four hours.


1. Stir wine, sugar, water, and gelatin in a small saucepan over low heat until gelatin is dissolved (do not let the mixture boil). Let it cool to room temperature.

2. Place the grape halves, cut side up, in concentric circles on top of the tart while the glaze cools, randomly adding red grape halves along with white grape halves.

3. Place the whole thing back into the fridge for 2 hours for the glaze to set. Pour the glaze over the top of the grapes, being attentive not to displace them. To serve, drizzle with melted white chocolate.
