I just wanted to get a feel for how people feel about using wine/beer/ale etc in cooking for the family? Are you concerned by the 1/2 glass of wine on a dish or do you find a substitute as you have a zero tolerance for alcohol in any form?

Totally fine with it.

Yep same here, don't see any issues as there is no more alcohol content left once it's cooked out.

I don't cook with alcohol. I know the alcohol content is gone but the flavour is there and quite frankly I don't want my kids getting a taste for wine/beer.

For those of you saying that there is no alcohol left, what dishes are you talking about? Cooking time, method etc.

hmm - thanks for that redlipsandpearls. I didnt know that.
I usually only put it in pasta sauce (about 1/2 cup of red wine) that is then boiled for about 45 minutes ...
and the amount she gets is minimal.
Still - its more than I thought

I feel perfectly comfortable feeding my children food that I have cooked with alcohol.
1/2 cup of wine divided by 6 serves, with the kids having probably less than half a serve. Plus a small percentage of it cooked off. I would say that's fairly negligible.
