Champagne and Poutine Pairing Challenge

We want Champagne tonight. Yet we also want hearty winter food. French fries work well with France’s famed bubbly. But what of Canada’s gift to heart surgeons: Poutine?


Both come from cold climates, right? This could work!

Luckily the Moët provides refreshing acid to keep that beast in the bowl from owning my palate. The autolytics of this particular Brut match the earthy mushroom gravy well. It is far from perfect, but a pleasant change.

    Did not get the the whole poutine thing- it sounded good on paper, but none of us liked it!

  2. Throw in some diamonds and we’re talking “best Valentine’s Day ev-vah!” You are on to something…xo
