WASTE WINE? NO WAY
One of the first celebrity chefs, Julia Child remains an icon of home cooking whose classic French recipes and legacy live on in the kitchens of her many followers. One of her characteristic moves was to cook with wine in keeping with French culinary tradition. Leftover wine (or even cheap champagne or sparkling wine) that's too old to drink adds complexity to a dish, elevating the flavor while ensuring no waste of a high-cost beverage. In honor of Child's birthday on Aug. 15, these recipes repurpose sparkling, white, rosé, red, and dessert wines to help home cooks get the most out of every bottle.
