Fight high inflation cooking with wine

Cooking with wine adds tremendous flavor and balance. The better the wine, the better the flavor. Cook with wine that is around #12 / bottle. Serve the remaining wine with the meal, or enjoy a glass while cooking.

By the way, if you do not drink wine – freeze wine in ice cube trays to cook with later. A simple way to freeze leftover wine is in an ice cube tray. Just pour it into the tray and then transfer the cubes to a freezer bag once they're frozen. Don’t forget to label the bag, so you can easily identify what's inside. Enjoy!
