“I love cooking with wine—sometimes I even put it in the food”

"I love cooking with wine—sometimes I even put it in the food.” This popular quote has been attributed to French chef Julia Child (1912-2004) and to the film comedian (and lover of the bottle) W. C. Fields (1880-1946). There is no evidence whatsoever that either Child or Fields ever used the quotation.

The quotation is cited in print by at least 1996. In 1999, someone wrote that the saying was on a refrigerator magnet.

Another saying about cooking with wine is “Never cook with wine you wouldn’t drink.”

Little Raven awards you for cooking with wine
By Tyler Nemkov in Food for Thought

Little Raven Vineyards, the distinctive wine shop at 1590 Little Raven Street, wants to reward you for coming up with culinary creations.

I stared blankly at the site for about fifteen minutes, at which point I finally spotted a quote by W. C. Fields:

“I cook with wine; sometimes I even put it in the food.”

I do not recommend using anything labeled “cooking wine.” Cooking with wine can be a pleasure and an enhancement to good food and a fine meal!.Cooking wine or Cooking sherry refers to inexpensive grape wine or rice wine.
