Is it possible for nondrinkers to be foodies?

Fuser | Nov 7, 2007 10:50 PM

I don't drink anymore and am feeling kind of left out because I can't experience the whole wine pairings aspect of dining. I still use wine in my cooking because the alcohol cooks off and so many foods really need a dash of wine to make them taste good. I'm wondering if any other nondrinkers feel limited in their epicurian appreciation. There's so much emphasis of wine and spirits these days -- heck the magazine is even titled Food&Wine -- which is fine for some, but for those of us who don't want to drink are there any non-alcoholic beverage options that enhance dining the way wine and beer does?
