One of the first celebrity chefs, Julia Child is an icon of home cooking whose recipes and legacy live on in the kitchens of her many followers. One of her characteristic moves was to cook with wine, in keeping with French culinary tradition. Leftover wine that's too old to drink adds complexity to a dish, elevating the flavor while ensuring no waste of a high-cost beverage.
