Marsala is a popular Italian wine that is used in many recipes. It was traditionally served as an aperitif or a dessert wine. Connoisseurs often enjoy Marsala wine chilled and paired with crackers and Parmesan, Gorgonzola, Roquefort, or some other tangy type of cheese.

Marsala wine can also be served at room temperature with fresh fruits or pastries. 

Rich Italian desserts such as Zabaglione, Tiramisu, and Shortcake are frequently made with Marsala wine. 

Chicken Marsala is traditionally an Italian-American food dish that uses Marsala wine in the sauce. Chicken Marsala is frequently ordered at restaurants in America. 

If you don't have any Marsala wine, you can substitute the red wine of your choice in the recipe. Dry and sweet varieties both work well.
