Cooking with wine
allows food to absorb lush and diverse flavors. Reds lend rich, velvety flavors to meats and decadent desserts. Whites help to create a lighter sauce for broths and pastas. Store already-opened wine in the fridge to have around for cooking.
First up, this lamb shoulder recipe combines sweet wine and spring produce with lamb, a meat typically associated with the season. You may need to call ahead to order lamb shoulder from your regular butcher. Look for a producer of grass-fed lamb in your area.
