In brief: Antabuse (disulfiram) and wine
It should be okay to cook with a little wine while on antabuse (disulfiram).
Most of the alcohol evaporates during cooking. If you take 250 mgs per day, or less, a very small amount of alcohol should not cause an Antabuse (disulfiram) reaction. Some take 500 mgs per day, and for those people, i would probably avoid any and all alcohol, even a small amount used for cooking. Good luck.

In brief: Yes, but a bit risky
A person on Antabuse (disulfiram) can eat food cooked in wine, but he risks getting a bad reaction if not all of the alcohol was evaporated away during the cooking.
Since some alcohol usually remains in the food, it seems risky to eat food cooked with wine.
