Food & Wine Pairing: Bubbles for New Year’s Eve

December 30th, 2016

OK, you’re going to have to open that bottle of bubbly, whether you’re a fan of the stuff or not. So why not make it worthwhile and build a meal around it, complement it, and make it less of an outsider to the party? [level-members]

For starters, you can include your favorite fried food with a dipping sauce and a crisp prosecco or cava. (With Chanukah still going, you could even do latkes!)

Looking for something fancier? Oysters pair beautifully with bubbles.

Moving on to more substantial fare, there are a whole variety of quiches that  are very bubbly-friendly.

And, of course, there’s always caviar …

Happy New Year, everyone. We’ll see you on Tuesday! [/level-members]
