But lo and behold, I read an article A Lesson in Enjoying Ice Wine that aptly stated "You pair it with desserts, drink it after meals, but you've never thought to use it to make your desserts, or use it in your meals".  Perhaps, its time we all venture out into new territory.  Imagine all the wonderful possibilities of cooking with ice wine...like with your French Toast....
