As you may have noticed, the theme of this blog is about the match made in culinary heaven that is champagne and fries. (Or frankly, most sparkling wines and versions of salted fried potatoes.) The concept isn't exactly new, but it has been batted around and reviewed in the food press for awhile, perhaps starting with this New York Times commentary in 2007, although I'm very open to reading anything that came before that.
Thus, here's a selection of assorted reads on my favorite pairing. My appetite for champagne and fries is only surpassed by my appetite for news, so I'll share more light reads from the food, wine, and spirits world each week.
