Cinzano sweet vermouth is the best cooking ingredient I have used for ages!
Sounds poncy but it makes really good sauces. bung it in with bacon and thicken it down.. add some cream.. done job.

If you have got a bottle hidden away get it out and give it a go!

They are good. I tend to use a splash of the extra dry when cooking fish - salmon done in the oven or on the BBQ in foil - butter, glug of Cinzano dry (or Noilly Prat preferably) and a bay leaf.

Reminds me of this and all those other famous ads. It was so chic in those days. "Suffused with herbs and spices...."

I should think so. I've never tried the Dolin but it looks to be dry enough to work.

If you take out the bacon, cream and all that other crap I'd be inclined to agree.
