    Welcome to the forums, and good luck with your round.

    No wine, sorry. You can use protocol-compliant broth to cook with. All of the allowed items are in this list:

    Have you read through the manuscript for the original protocol? It explains everything you need to know. The link for the manuscript is in the top menu bar.

    Thanks! I suspected as much when I saw that alcohol doesn't cook off as much as I thought. Aw well.

    I have looked at the protocol, but all I saw was about drinking wine. Same with Google. LOL

    I was thinking about this a bit more and here are my musings to consider.

    The protocol allows vinegar. To be absolutely purist about it, apple cider vinegar would be a first choice since apples are already on protocol. But any particular variety of vinegar is not specified, so it is assumed that any kind is allowed.

    It is logical that in 1950's Italy, wine vinegar would be in common use. If it was found to be detrimental to the diet, it would have been specifically disallowed. So since vinegar is basically wine that has been fermented further, I suppose you could make a case for using wine in cooking during P2 in the same quantity that a wine vinegar would be used to dress a salad. I'm not sure if the addition of sulphites in wine would be a factor or not. Also, vinegar is 3-9% acetic acid. Acetic acid is only allowed in wine in very small amounts. So that may make it a whole nuther animal.

    Its something you could try and see how you do if that makes sense to you.

    An aside that might be helpful: I have found that google suppresses or buries a lot of search results about alternative medicine. I can often find more on one of the more neutral search engines like DuckDuckGo.
