White rice cooking wine, also known as mijiu or michiu, is a Chinese cooking wine with mild, clean flavor and rich fragrance. Michiu is used to improve the flavor of many dishes such as marinades, braises, and steamed dishes to reduce unwanted gamey or fishy flavors and enhance the final taste. Shaoxing is another popular type of rice wine with a darker color and more complex flavor.
Uses: Use rice wine as the base for braises and sauces to create dishes with deep and memorable flavor. Add a splash when cooking to boost the flavor and aroma of your food.
