rachel ray

I notice that rachel ray almost always put beer or wine in her food . Is that bad for kids or pregnant women to eat?

  • It's Rachael Ray. For all the times I've watched her, I've rarely seen her use alcohol. The alcohol evaporates/burns out in cooking, anyway. It just gives foods a different flavor, plus I like using beer on my roasts because it makes them more tender. My kids eat stuff cooked in/with beer all the time and I did during all of my pregnancies. No FAS or mini-alkies here.

  • When you heat the alcohol (cook it), it evaporates. So, there should be no residual alcohol when the dish is done, therefore it's fine for kids and pregnant women to eat.
