I really hope this isn't too contentious and I haven't been around here for a while but this is always a good place for a variety of opinions.
I use alcohol in cooking quite regularly. Beef and guiness pie, red wine marinated steaks etc. I was always told the alcohol cooks off and for this reason I regularly serve my kids meals with alcohol in them, albeit cooked.
A mum I really respect recently mentioned having to cook a separate dinner for her kids as she had added wine to a casserole. I really didn't think this was an issue for kids in terms of alcohol consumption.
So what's your take on this?
