you consider that French and Italian children, for example, have been having meals containing wine for god knows how long, and they seem to get by just fine.......with the obvious exception of Silvio Berlusconi.
Kalgirl, I'm with you. I will defend the right of cooks to use, and even be heavy handed with vanilla extract to the bitter end.
I find it amusing that people think it is not ok to use alcohol in cooking if they're serving it to kids, but will rub vanilla essence on their kids gums...
If I cook it thens its fine, if its a dessert then I don't serve to the kids I often "slip" in my trifle a bit too much

They generally call for "dry" versions. That said, I just choose what I personally would prefer to drink... because you have to buy a whole bottle, but you certainly don't USE the whole bottle just for cooking.
So I use stuff like Charonnay and Sauvingnon Blanc for the whites and Pinot Noir for red (I don't like red wine, but Pinot Noir is not as intense).
