Over this Christmas period I've found a new match - miniature Melton Mowbray pork pies - they go just great with Champagne!
We usually have Champagne as an aperitif before Sunday dinner, moving onto red with the food.
But fish and chips and Champagne makes a perfect match.
This is Rich Man's Fish and Chips
at the ***** Marine Hotel on the cliff at Hermanus, South Africa. It's a tradition for us to go there at least once when in the Cape, and have a bottle (not of Champagne of course, that'd be silly) but of Villiera Tradition Brut Methode Cap Classique - glass just in shot top right - which has the added bonus for me of some Pinotage in the cepage.
I love Champagne and sparkling wine and enjoyed a bottle of Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut with a hamburger in the Intercontinental, Monterey on outr last full day in California in November.
Whatever it is, fizz makes it better
