Who can recommend a cognac for cooking, which also suitably stands up for sipping...?

Signed, cognac forlorn

Any decent VS ought to do, but take my opinion with a grain of salt. Cognac to me is expensive, high octane grape syrup. grin

Why spend the extra money for cooking?

Use brandy it will impart more flavor to the food and it comes in a wide variety.

Save the Cognac from drinking.

More importantly where the Armagnac


Maybe we're all happy.

For me I've found the $20-30 brandys really good for cooking. Most American brands that are grape based. E&J VSOP is moderately priced and imparts a good flavor that holds during cooking. You can move up if you want from there but I haven't found in the last 30+ years that wasting a great drinking $100+ bottle of drinking brandy on a dish really made it taste better. May stroke your ego but that's about it. And I've dropped some serious cash on food and spirits living in NorCal in the past.

Go with other fruit based brandies like Calvados an apple brandy for dessert recipes or when you want a sweeter more fragrant note.


Maybe we're all happy.

Never cook with wine/spirits that you would not happily drink.

By all means do what makes you think tastes best. I'll reserve the premiums for how they were meant to be enjoyed. 👍

Seems to me that Chef's cook with wine where Cooks don't. I have eaten very little food cooked by Chef's, but none was up to par with the food that my Mother cooked. From breads to pies to meats and veggies. Never a drop of wine or brandy in any of it. miles


Look out for number 1, don't step in number 2.

You think like me Miles, I like what I'd call thresher's meals. Not fancy, but good, and enough of it.
The kind of meals cooked for a lot of hungry, hard working men.

It's a shame you've never had a meal prepared by a good Chef. The term chef is bandied about especially with the 1001 cooking shows on the air.

A splash of wine really can add some interesting flavors to dishes. When I make a stew after browning the meat and onions I use a good dash of Cabernet to deglaze the pot. It really adds a richness to the flavor.

There are all different kinds of foods and ways to prepare them to create whatever flavor profile is intended.
