SelfishMe Travel log post - National Moscato Day - May 9th

And because of its sweetness, most of my friends (who are not really into wines) really love this one. It’s on display on their tables, in their cabinets, and wine racks. And even those who don’t drink, might be persuaded to try it.

Me? Ugh NO! I do despise it.

Regardless of my tastes, did you know that Moscato can be used in cooking? Yes, from savory to sweet dishes.

Here are four intriguing recipes that I found online:
