Q: I had an Asian-themed potluck dinner and a friend brought a large bottle of sake. I don't particularly like drinking it, but I know you can cook with it.
Does anyone have any recipes with sake?

Editor: Gabrielle, well, first of all, if you don't like sake cold, do try drinking it warm; it's one of our favorite warm winter beverages.
After that, here are a few recipes from our archives that call for some sake.
• Matsutake Dobin Mushi
• Homey Chicken Soup (with Ginger)
Readers, do you sake in your cooking at all? We know that it is also used for pickling sometimes.
