What is dry cooking sherry?
generally cooking wine which includes dry cooking sherry is wine with a lot of sodium added. it is not for drinking straight, only to use in cooking. I suggest using real wine or sherry.
Answer: Yes, they are essentially the same product. Answer: Cooking sherry contains salt; dry sherry does not. Cooking sherry cannot be used in drinks at all (it's only palatable in cooking--hence the name). If you use it in place of dry sherry in a recipe, you may want to reduce the salt elsewhere in the recipe.
Any good DRY sherry wil do. Just don't use cooking sherry . If it's not good enough to drink , you will not get a good result in your recipe . Ask for a dry sherry at the liquor store , but don't mention it's for cooking. I'm sorry I can't recommend any brand names , but I usually only cook with burgundy or sauterne .
