I just talked to a woman who took left over wine and made icecubes out of them!

I didn't think that was possible?????

Freezing wine, HMRC (FDA) might have something to say!:D, the distillation or separation of alcohol by freezing without a license or paying the appropriate duty is an offence apparently, :D, but only if they can prove it was you;)

I didn't think that was possible?????( ah now heres the catch, y'know the expression "go tell it to the marines" [they go and look for themselves!:D], "not possible" has that affect on me!)
{ ........................empty space............................................................................................ }

:< red wine at sub zero?:D (unless it is Beaujolais Nouveau, in which case frozen is good!) if there is any left, which is seldom it will sit on the side until I cook, which is often;), with beef, braised, Bolognaise, red onion marmalade, red cabbage, sometimes even left open outside for vinegar!!!!, it goes in the onion marmalade;).

I may be in the minority here, however I really hate wine sauces.

much better to just drink the wine..

I don't like casseroles with beer in them either.. all the delicate flavours are lost. it overpowers everything.

may I suggest that you don't like "bad" wine sauces, if the wine is the first thing you taste, do not eat there again!, they cannot cook!, there are only a few casseroles or carbonades with beer in them, and if too much or too strong a beer is used the dish is ruined, the best liqour for a braise or casserole is water, if the other ingredients cannot provide enough flavour, find a new recipe;)..........;)

I just avoid the dishes that state wine sauces.

thankyou.. you have reiterated my own feelings.

besides, I prefer delicate dishes.. richer foods are too much for me.

beary?

I just reread my post and saw you are in england?

if so I amend my post to... favourite, absolutely, ever, main meal...

Steak and kidney pie in a suet pastry..


I would never walk past a restaurant/cafe.. with a menu/chalkboard offering this as their chefs special.


It is beyond heaven.. made properly. English cuisine is more than .. 'deep fried chips and mars bars'.

Just two small point's m'dear, deepfried mars bar's are a horrible Scottish invention and pomme's fritte(chip's) are French, on the other hand, snake and pygmy pie/pudding(baby's head!! [Navy]) is fab, personally I cannot pass a "pie and mash" shop, because they also serve stewed eel's in parsley sauce, ooh bliss double pie and mash with eel's in liqour, large mug of tea, bread and butter and as much chilli vinegar as you like:D.

and you just love "steak and kidney pie", now let me just remember some biology, oh yes the blood passes through the kidneys where the urea is removed and passed with other waste fluids to the bladder, you really want to eat kidney's?, I think my eel's are rather nice and clean considering:D.

and you can call the English what you like:D, I'm part Welsh and part Irish, so there:sp
