Food & Wine Pairing: Champagne and Sparkling Wine

May 15th, 2015

Sure there are oysters – and wedding cake – but Champagne and other sparkling wines are much more versatile than that. [level-members]

Epicurious has a nice page devoted to entire menus you can build around sparkling wines, even making specific bottle recommendations.

More generally, its ability to stand up to acidic foods makes it work with everything from caviar and shellfish to smoked fish, salty and fried foods, even snack foods like popcorn and potato chips.

And let’s face it, Champagne and potato chips could be the most decadent “meal” even conceived.

Enjoy your weekend.
