Are you preparing
a romantic dinner? A party? Want to feel great eating alone? Whatever
the reason, champagne is a definitely must. What to serve it with
before the main meal, though?
There are some
appetizers that suit with champagne better than with any other
beverage or alcoholic drink: caviar, as an example, is so well known
it doesn't even require presentation. Here are some others:
OK, liver. I just
used the French term that chefs will use; please don't shoot me for
that. I mean, champagne is French, isn't it? Anyway, try goose or
duck liver. This soft, smooth type of dish will certainly increase
your drinking experience.
A good combination
but you should not use it if you prefer the oysters with lemon or
vinegar. These are serious taste decreases when regarding champagne.
Just a perfect
combination. Almost everybody likes sushi and champagne will surely
be the catalyst to a great dinner or party.
that uses mushrooms is a good match for champagne. Of course, do not
use any heavy sauce. Cheese filled mushrooms are a great appetizer.
Shrimp is a good
appetizer for champagne at any time. Raw shrimp, especially, will
make the taste of your drink a lot better. This is of course, when
you avoid the heavy sauce.
Well, one of the
most sought for appetizers with champagne is cheese. But - yes, there
is a but- there are so many types of cheese that I chose to give them
a full new page here. Check it out if want to find out what champagne
to use with what cheese.
The appetizers are
the introduction to a great meal but, when paired with champagne,
they are even more: they are the start of a happy time, of a
celebration. Why don't you just try to make every occasion a celebration?
Maybe we could all
be a lot happier then...
