I have a question about the recipe "Roasted Herbaceous Chicken Leg Quarters and Veg" from AmyW. I'm out of white wine, can I substitute dry vermouth ?
Julia Child recommended using dry white vermouth when a recipe calls for white wine. I actually prefer it in some recipes for chicken and seafood.
thanks! I was feeling insecure with the choice - great to have someone else in the kitchen!
I too prefer white vermouth in many of my recipes. It is always at hand if you love martinis
Yes, dry vermouth is great. You may want to check several as they all have their own specific "herbal" profile. I have a favorite and it isn't expensive. Also, opened vermouth has a longer shelf life properly stored.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
