START WITH CHAMPAGNE
– Candy Champagne
I recently read an article about Thomas Keller’s “15 Lessons from 20 Years of the French Laundry”. It is 20th anniversary of the renowned Napa restaurant this year (and you still need to book a reservation 6 months in advance!).
Lesson # 8 – Start with Champagne!
The Laundry was one of the first restaurants in the US with a tasting menu, for which you need a light, refreshing and acidic wine to start. The best option? Champagne. A glass of it excites the appetite and is a reset button for your palate. There is nothing more perfect to get you ready for eating.
I think all champagne addicts would agree with Thomas Keller!
