In the words of legendary food and wine writer chef Malcolm R. Hebert, "Champagne is like sequined lingerie for the mouth." Here he takes up this most civilizations, most seductive of drinks, and, like an alchemists, turns it into Caesar Salad Dressing. The best damn Caesar Salad Dressing ever. This one-of-a-kind cookbook, takes us on a guided tour through the wonders of sparkling wine as a main ingredient, in appetizers, soups, salads (Caesar Salad, for instance), main courses, and desserts. Lots of desserts. Of course no Champagne cookbook would be complete without cocktails and punches.Sumptuously illustrated throughout with art nouveau illustrations, this is a one-of-a-kind book for anyone with a love of Champagne, or just the joie de vivre of one.
