Thanks for the thumbs up S and P

Im going to have a look at the life of a bottle of non-alcohol wine and how it keeps, we do not get asked too often for this product , but we do get requests several times a year, one of my suppliers do stock a non-alcohol wine I know for sure, but guess what, its more expensive than an entry-level varietal wine , not a huge amount more but still more.
ill maybe order a dozen cases for the next container.

Did my first call in today after 4 months exile (2 weeks holiday in Costa Rica, then 3 months stuck in UK, 2 weeks in prison at Malpas). Am so sad that you are moving east as I live in Zeytinlik and regularly shop at Ileli, crossing Girne to go to Catalkoy is a bit of a pain. When your lovely young lady said that my favourite Hillside Zinfandel was only 25tl I thought OK I'll have 3 boxes!! Have a cool dark space to keep them so can last out till I have a good reason to venture across town after you finally move.
Ps will have to come over sometimes just to fuss the lovely dog!

Hi Sukicat

Send Gulzhan a message and she will always do drop off near to your home anything that you need as long as its at least 1 full box x 6 bottles as this is what she will be doing for some of her Alsancak Customers. The Hillside Californian is a bargain at that price ($$) 0548 888 5854

Now that's a wonderful offer of delivery, we'll remember that when our reserves get low.

We'll miss you being in Alsancak.

Always a hiccup isn't there Waddo !

Truck should of come friday,problem with truck,rearranged for this morning,all went smooth,truck didn't break down.

Finally out of the Alsancak shops, it's been a blast i think i can say.

Felt quite strange being in a tiny shop in Catalkoy but no need for such big floor space any more,or so i think at the moment! :x))

Cheers waddo

Crikey, I've never used Bristol Cream for cooking, used to use South African cheapo for that. Bristol Cream was sitting back and and savouring.

It's not 'my brand' hence the etc... it's a style/sweetness that I'm after so PX Sherry would suit too.

FYI it's for homemade mincemeat, I've already made a batch using Ruby Port... that is delicious but I am keen to see if sherry is even better... or Madeira...

We have Madeira also Marsala some cream sherries also fino, we have also brought a Rose Porto for the first time, and a crusty Porto. To many ports to mention, I'll get some photos and post them over the next few days. Pedro Ximenez also. And a fad No6 medium dry, Also Amontillado. Possibly a few more that I don't remember.

Am sure it was nice, just too long ago to remember what I was cooking when mother went nuts. Then when she realised that was what I was using whenever brandy was called for in a recipe, she bought me a cheaper bottle of brandy for cooking with. Am not a brandy/cognac drinker, so it made no difference to me. However, when cooking with wine, I always use what I drink. Not going to ruin my cooking with wine that I'd pour down the sink.

When i hear people say, ohh any wine will do im only cooking with it, well any old wine wont do in my book, why ruin a good meal by cooking with an inferior wine,seems some might do!

Why is nobody willing to accept/acknowledge/admit that the existence/raison d'etre/purpose of alcohol (in all its many forms - wine, beers, spirits,hooch and etc.) is simply to get people intoxitated/drunk/smashed out of their minds....? :wink:
(Euphemisms include relaxation, a mild glow, a relief of/from the pressures of the day..... :wink: )
Why spoil the many and varied delicious flavours of food with wines and/or beers; why spoil the many and varied delicious flavours of wines, beers and liqueurs with food? :lol:
The first 40 - 50 years of my life, I barely imbibed, as I found no variety of alcohol of which I liked the taste; then at last I did - so now, (very occasionally) I retire slightly affected by the gifts of Bacchus...
...But at least I have not descended to meths..... :roll:

If you look back in time, wine and beer were drunk as it was safer to drink than water, beer by the working classes, wine for the better off.
Some food does benefit from the addition of a splash of something, Bolognese sauce just does not taste as good without a small glass of red wine to me.

If you were a chef you would know that using wine or beer in a cooked dish does not impart alcohol to the finished product as the alcohol is driven off at a low temperature. Leaving a flavour that can't be achieved by any other means. Nobody has ever got drunk by eating food made with wine or beer. You'd be hard pushed to eat enough of any cold dish with alcohol in it to get any effect... Either that or you'd need to swamp a trifle in sherry - which would taste awful.

"Starkle starkle little twink
Who the hell you are I think
I'm not under what you call
The affluence of incahol
I'm just a little slort of sheep
I'm not drunk like tinkle peep
I don't know who is me yet
But the drunker I stand here
The longer I get
Just give me one more drink
To fill me cup
'cuz I got all day sober
To Sunday up."

Very good Jofra. :lol:

As Groucho says, you can't taste the alcohol in cooked food, but there is definitely that certain something, which makes all the difference to the flavour.

I used to think that alcohol was cooked out, but have only fairly recently discovered that it's not the case. There's still around 5% left after simmering something like ragu sauce for around 3 hours, which is nothing to be concerned about, and certainly wouldn't be putting you over the limit. Mind you the glass or two of red that you have with it, probably would. :lol:

Very good Jofra. :lol:

As Groucho says, you can't taste the alcohol in cooked food, but there is definitely that certain something, which makes all the difference to the flavour.

I used to think that alcohol was cooked out, but have only fairly recently discovered that it's not the case. There's still around 5% left after simmering something like ragu sauce for around 3 hours, which is nothing to be concerned about, and certainly wouldn't be putting you over the limit. Mind you the glass or two of red that you have with it, probably would. :lol:
If you deglaze your cooking pans with wine after browning the meat and before adding the liquor back into the main ingredients as all good chefs do there will only be trace amounts of alcohol if any.... You should never just pour large amounts of wine into the mix without some reduction first. In any case 5% abv of a wine that starts off at 12 - 15% abv is a very small amount indeed. You should never be aware of the taste of alcohol in cooked food..

I lost a complete weekend in France in my youth. I had no idea at the time that Calvados had so much of a kick.
