There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps is a glass of champagne.
Doll, it’s time to pop your cork. Saturday is National Champagne Day and, well, of course, it’s also New Year’s Eve. But Champagne and sweets? That’s so MMXVI. As we fête National Champagne Day and usher in 2017, let’s take a demi-sec and listen in as Benoît Gouez, Chef de Cave at the venerable Champagne house Moët & Chandon, tells us “champagne likes salt” and suggests serving our bubbly with something decidedly savory. Trust us, we like chocolate truffles as much as the next party gal, but there’s nothing like champers paired with savory snacks like truffled popcorn and potato chips. Looking for a delicious snack to pair with your Champagne on New Year’s Eve? Here are five elegant, no-fuss hors d’oeuvres certain to spice up your New Year’s Eve soirée. Each can be whipped up in 15 minutes or less, so get ready to pop those corks and relish the evening. Bonne année and bonne santé!
