Champagne and Desserts

What desserts are traditional with this fine sparkling wine?

This is a classic for romantic occasions, but it only works with very sweet sparklers!

Tarts & Crumbles
Fruit dishes that are fresh and light work perfectly well - an apple tart, a pear crumble.

Fruit Puddings
Another great dish with Champagne is plum pudding or rice pudding. This is perfect for holiday celebrations! Again, if you use a sweeter pudding, be sure to pair it with a sweeter Chamapgne.

Shortbread and Almond Cookies
Choose light, delicate cookies to match well with Champagne's bubbles and freshness. Kugelhopf is a classic almond cake that does quite nicely.
