champagne wishes + caviar dreams...

I've always had an affinity for champagne, but after coming across these 2011 Moet & Chandon ads starring Scarlett Johansson, my love for the bubbly instantly went straight to my head.  There is nothing more simple, yet elegantly delightful than a sparkly glass of champagne...unless of course, you pair it with a dime-sized indulgence of caviar.  For your next cocktail gathering, consider serving the celebratory drink with equally exquisite Potato Pancakes with Smoked Salmon, Dilled Creme Fraiche and Caviar (they sound complicated, but they're really very simple).  Bon Appetit [tres chic]!

GOOD TASTE TIP: Not in the mood to light the stove?  Whip up the creme fraiche the night before and layer the smoked salmon and caviar* atop simple black bread, toasted french bread (sliced thinly) or small, substantial crackers.  For a less extravagant night in, serve this delicious hors d'oeuvre paired with a nice Pinot Noir or Pinot Grigio. 

*Caviar may be replaced with a simple sprig of dill for those less-inclined to this delicacy.


  1. I'm actually not much of a champagne girl (although if I do indulge, a creamy Schramsberg is nice) but I do love these photos. And your menu sounds delish!

  2. These images are the gorgeous dress!!
