How to Pair Champagne with Food (Video!)

In this video we explore how to pair Champagne with food and test it out with live tastings on camera!

We’ll taste a classic style of Champagne  Billecart-Salmon NV Brut Réserve, and pair it with:

Triple Crème Brie
Macaroni and Cheese
Fried Chicken
Rice Crispy Treats
(You’ve got to try it to believe it, but we’ll explain how it works).

We’ll explain how and why the wine and food pairings work, as well as give you some pros and cons about pairing sweet and dry Champagne with dessert and cheese as well as put some myths about food and wine pairings to rest, like Champagne and Strawberries. For more information on food and wine pairing in general, we’ve got you covered in four rules.
