It takes a long time to evaporate the alcohol fully via cooking. Next time, preferably avoid using alcohol in cooking/marinating. If you have already taken a bit of alcohol, know that a tiny bit once in a while wouldn't cause way too much harm but do avoid in future. Alcohol does affect baby and even kids growth.

Better avoid. Even when drinking, rice wine is so much stronger than many other alcohol. To be safe just avoid during your pregnancy.


Yws but it has to cook long enough and let alcohol evaporate. Btw if those dishes with wine is very bu.
