FOOD & CHAMPAGNE PAIRING MADE EASY

HOW TO MAKE YOUR APPETIZERS POP

 

Cheese and sparkling wine pairingsChoose your cheese. It's a natural combo: wine and cheese. Champagne's no exception. Foolproof selects are mild cheddar, Brie, gouda, and edam.

Seafood and sparkling wine pairingsSeafood is great C-food. Champagne food, that is. Everything from shrimp, lobster, raw oysters, and sushi go great with champagne.

Popcorn and sparkling wine pairingsHave a little salt with your sparkly. Salty and fried foods are a dynamic pairing with champagne. Surprised? Try a glass of Cook's Brut California Champagne with proscuitto-wrapped apps, cocktail sausages, or fried mushrooms. Other quick app options are: popcorn, potato chips, and nuts, especially almonds.

Roast chicken and sparkling wine pairingsChicken n' champagne. The bubbles of champagne smooth over the flavor of steamed or baked chicken. Skip the grilled chicken though - it's too powerful for champagne.

Fruit and sparkling wine pairingsFruit's friend. It's a combo made in champagne heaven. For lighter fare, drop a few strawberries into a glass of champagne. Or serve your sparkly with a fruity dessert.
