Here are two magical World War II-era advertisements from the Wine Advisory Board.
'You'll discover...the magic that happens when food is cooked with wine'! What oenophiles know is that wine is fairly inoffensive both in your food and as a dinner accompaniment. You can add a little California Burgundy to your Baked Ham Burgundy (shown) or baste your Leg O' Lamb with white table wine. You can even fill your grapefruit with sherry! And why stop there because, if there's one thing that this ad can attest to, it's that wine is as natural a companion to your food as anything else in nature!
As a wish goes with a rainbow.. Wine goes with food. Everything on this page has been basted in some variety of table wine!
