Yep - same problem as with trifle: quite a lot of alcohol and none of it removed by heating.Ben wrote:When I cook and I might include a little wine in something that gets simmered - and simmered for a while.
Having said that I do recall an incident over 20 years ago when I had some tira misu at a restaurant. It didn't occur to me that the dish contained brandy and I was a bit surprised that I got drunk by eating one serving. I was a bit more careful after that.
A bloke I met once, years ago, told me he got booked for drink-driving after a very sedate Sunday lunch which included no alcoholic drinks but finished with a trifle made by his mother-in-law-to-be.
