Pairing, Cooking with Herbs and Wines
Cooking with wine and herbs is an interesting combination that imparts a unique flavor to cuisine.
It is definitely easier than most people think. Herbs are analogous to wines when it comes to the similarity of usage; it does not a lot of wine or herb to enhance the flavor of dish. For herbs, it is the freshness that counts, for wine it is the aging factor that makes the difference in making a dish extra-ordinary.
You can try adding herbs and wines in cuisines such as vinaigrettes, sauces, puddings, marinades and many other dishes that require a dash of lemon and vinegar. In fact you can add herbs in the company of lime but wine is not commonly used in adjunction with vinegar. Start with a small quantity, add a few tablespoons, and let the dish simmer till the wine gets evaporated.

And, it has some excellent recipes. There’s a mother lode of interesting meals and wine pairings in this one.
✅ Daring Pairings
Really cool and useful – Got this for my granddaughter who is studying wine and all that… she also works at a place that does “wine pairings” and has tastings for wines. She adores the book.
