White rice cooking wine, also known as mijiu or michiu, is a popular cooking alcohol in Chinese cuisine. This white wine has a rich fragrance and clean flavor that can be used to improve dishes. Michiu can be used in marinades, braises, and steamed dishes to reduce unwanted gamey or fishy flavors and enhance final flavor. Shaoxing is another popular type of rice wine that has a 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.
