A brief summary to use when buying your champagne and nibbles:
Brut Blend – Oysters (if those are not available, try fresh mussels in a light white wine garlic sauce)
Blanc de Blancs – fresh pan-seared fish
- Brie and prosciutto are fantastic with a nice rosé and they’re even better when combined.
- Smoked salmon
- Chocolate and raspberries, or (better yet) chocolate-covered berries.
