I agree with Julia Child’s philosophy when she said, “I enjoy cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food…”
So Julia would be happy to see just how far that line of thinking has gone. I find myself sneaking a splash of wine into most foods (except my oatmeal… I haven’t found a way to ease that in yet… just give me time!)
Below you’ll find 12 delightful dishes that allow you to drink and dine with the same bottle.
