Can recovering alcoholics eat food prepared in wine?
Yes, I don't see why not. The heat of cooking will evaporate any residual alcohol and you will be left with only the taste. Of course it also depends on the person and the depth of their psycological dependancy.
I would say definitely not!!!!! you are taking a risk that someone with an illness could go back drinking again and end up; dead!!!
The physical addiction to alcohol can be beaten with time, it's the psycological addiction that stays forever. Yes that's a real problem and can manifest itsself in physical ways. Cooking with wine or even beer battered shrimp should not cause someone to start drinking again, the taste is not the same or even close really. It's the thought that they are consuming an alcohol base that catches them. So it does truly depend on the person and their own limitations.
The notion that it's no big deal is VERY off base. It's irresponsible to publish these completely uninformed answers!
These are clearly not doctors nor addiction experts. Having alcohol in your system can re-ignite your addiction. This is dangerous territory. I don't know how serious putting wine in food might be...but it's a far more complicated question than the answers above would indicate.
This is a really bad/dangerous answer!!! The "taste" of alcohol is not what makes a person addicted. Wow, that's WAY off! So that really has nothing to do with whether food cooked in wine might re-addict someone or not. Also, the physical addiction does NOT go away--ever--which is why we need to avoid alcohol forever. Having it in our system re-ignites the brain in ways that renews the addiction.
NO Take a look........

No! Alcohol does not completely cook out. The physical addiction to alcohol can be beaten with time, it's the psycological addiction that stays forever.

I probably shouldn't be answering this as I am not a Protestant, but my thought - from talking with people that I know who are - is that 1) they don't truly believe that it is Our Blessed Lord's blood, 2) they don't believe in drinking - I have one friend who is a preacher at the local Free Will Baptist Church who strongly believes that we should not drink, not sure how he got…
Some cheeses and grapes and wine. Answer #2 This would depend on city restaurant food or normal household prepared food, the latter would also depend on the region in France. As and example in South-west France the foods are rich in taste and red wine, in Eastern France their food is influenced by the German cuisine. For more information please see related link below!
No, but the dish will taste better if red wine is used. If you don't want to consume alcohol, you should know that cooking drives off either all or most of the alcohol found in the wine. Even many non-drinking alcoholics consume dishes that contain red wine (or other alcoholic beverages) as an ingredient.
A wine expert is usually called an "oenologist". An "epicurean" appreciates good food and wine, as does a "gourmand." A "nutritionist" is an expert on the nutritious aspects of food and wine. A common slang term that's becoming popular is a "foodie." Here's a humorous hierarchy of food and wine specialists: 1. Gastronome (a food and wine expert) 2. Gourmet (A connoisseur of food and drink) 3. Friand (an Epicure) 4. Gourmand (One who enjoys…
