Central Bistro's Andrea Volpi Offers Tips on Cooking with Wine

You've probably seen the meme about wine and cooking: "I tried cooking with wine for the first time last night. After 5 glasses, I forgot why I was in the kitchen."

Even if this is you, have no fear.

General "cooking with wine" rules including things like "don't use cheap wine," or use a dry white wine if your recipe uses sugary vegetables like onions, carrots and tomatoes. Got it. But what do you actually make with wine? Lucky us: Andrea Volpi from Central Bistro was kind enough to share some wine based recipes with Chow Bella and answer some questions, too.
