Champagne Snacks

Hello dear readers!

Today I have culinary delights. Bite something necessary! And not just like that, but with the mind, with knowledge of etiquette, rules of compatibility of products and alcoholic beverages.

The content of the article

No one will argue that champagne is a drink of celebration and happiness. We raise glasses of sparkling wine in honor of the birthday man, celebrate New Year with champagne splashes, accompany them with a fun party and celebrate the successful completion of the case.

Many are interested in the question: what is served to the champagne, and then pineapples are already trite, but the grouse is somehow not in the future. I did a real research job – and now I will not make annoying mistakes, like most of us, setting the table with champagne.

But, all in order. Champagne can be served in different ways – as an aperitif, as an accompaniment to the entire banquet or buffet, and as the final drink to the dessert. Depending on this, any sweets are selected to him.

It turned out that there are certain rules for combining sparkling wines and products, and some stereotypes familiar to us from Soviet times are puzzling, if not horrified, by the gourmets tempted in this business.

Taboo on the table with champagne

For example, connoisseurs are considered unacceptable to combine with champagne pork, dark chocolate, coffee and oranges. In a bad way, mushrooms will be served to the noble drink – well, except for truffles. And since they do not threaten us, then do not put any mushrooms on the table.

Also, salads with mayonnaise do not go to the bubble drink at all. And that is exactly what our parents did – what a New Year without a Olivier basin! True, then the choice of products was very limited – there was nothing to sort out. But now you can do it right!
