When cooking dishes that calls for white wine, I’ve always wondered if there is any substitute that I can use.  Wine is not always available in my home and if I have to include it in my cooking, I have to run to the grocery or wine store and purchase a bottle.

I did some research and found that there is no direct substitute since white wine is added to spike the flavors of the dish.  According to Chef Gonzales, wine is also added to take out the lansa or fishy taste in seafood dishes.  If you are not too particular about that, he says, it’s alright to omit the white wine.

    While not a direct substitute you can use chicken or vegetable broth in many recipes that call for wine.

    I keep cooking wines in my cabinet because they last much longer. It’s just in case I don’t have a wine in the house that is needed, I just pull out my red or white cooking wine and I’ve never had any problems. The taste with an $15 bottle is of course better but you’re already talking about substituting it and it still creates a great flavor.
