Cooking With Wines - How Much Alcohol Remains?
Answer: Hi Amanda. Thanks for visiting EFF and writing in with your question.
Assuming that all alcohol burns off with cooking is a common culinary error. The amount that burns off is proportional to the intensity of the heat as well as the length of time the dish cooks.
In a stew recipe such as the
Estouffade Provençale , which calls for a long, slow cooking, most of the alcohol will be burnt off. However, more than likely, traces will remain, which may be of concern for people on a restricted diet.
For more information, have a look at the chart provided with this article on OChef: Does Alcohol Really Burn Off With Cooking?
Hope that helps. Happy cooking!
