Best Wine for Cooking Mushrooms
Mushrooms, like meats, are easy to pair with wine. Red wines like elegant Pinot Noir, earthy Syrah, and flashy Zinfandel all pair well with the rich foresty flavors and textures of these wild and cultivated wild fungi. Full-bodied, barrel-fermented white and dry rosé wines can also pair well with these denizens of moist, cool places, depending on the nature of the recipe.
Although there are thousands of species of wild mushrooms, only about 30 are commonly used in cooking. Fortunately, some of the most delectable is also the most easily identified.
