The Holland House brand has teamed up with Tatyana Nesteruk host of the You Tube cooking show. Tatyana specializes in family friendly step by step tutorials which make cooking easier than ever!
As I was making this savory dish I discovered that I make a dish very similar to the Bold and Smoky Pepper Marsala Pasta only I keep it vegetarian most of the time, making this a very versatile dish.


Holland House is a brand that we can all have confidence in using.

My Mom used Holland House and I do too, it has been around for 100 years!
In a time period where so many things come and go, it sure is nice to use a trusted product that your can rely on and has stood the test of time.
Holland House wines are fantastic for everyday meals, you can add a few tablespoons to any dish and immediately enhance the flavors of everything from chili's and stews to seafood.
This past Sunday we had Chicken Marsala for Sunday dinner and I used the Holland House Marsala cooking wine, it was delicious.


Each cooking wine has it's own unique flavor and enhances dishes in different ways.
I have provided a little information which I thought might be a useful resource for your Holiday cooking.

The Flavors Of Five Holland House Cooking Wines 

Marsala cooking wine imparts a well-rounded, sweet wine flavor with hints of hazelnut that is versatile and ideal for cooking with beef, chicken and pork.

Sherry cooking wine offers a mild, sherry-wine flavor with hints of nut and caramel, perfect for use in dessert recipes to balance sweet with a hint of nutty flavor.


Red cooking wine offers a smooth, medium-bodied wine flavor that is ideal for cooking heartier dishes like beef, lamb and pork.

White cooking wine adds a slightly dry, but distinct wine flavor perfect for bringing out the bold flavors in chicken, seafood and sauces.

White and Lemon cooking wine brings a citrus twist to the traditional white wine flavor, ideal for cooking lighter dishes like seafood.
