Who Counts the Bubbles in Champagne?

champagne-glass.jpegI attended the champagne and caviar tasting at the Whole Foods in Coral Gables last night and learned a lot! I already knew I love caviar and am extremely picky about my champagne, so I was thinking I would just go and have fun.

Little did I know I would actually learn that champagne has 56 million bubbles per bottle, that the reason for checking the cork from a champagne bottle is to make sure it matches the label, and that proper champagne opening etiquette is to make the cork “kiss” instead of “pop”!

    Don’t know if they are specifically preparing pumpkin ravioli, but the cooking class is Oct. 29 at 7:00 p.m. You can find their Oct. calendar at http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/calendars/CGB.html.

    I don’t know if I am there #1 customer, but I sure enjoy the quality of their food and their business philosophy.

    Thank you for the comments. My son told me he spoke with a very nice lady from EWM’s Pinecrest office regarding my blogging. I hope you enjoyed the fish…did you have some champagne with it?

    A Champagne “kiss” ! From this day onward , I will have an entirely new expectation with regard to Champagne! – Jennifer, you write a beautiful blog ! I had a conversation about your “blogging” the other day with a delightful young man at the Captain’s Tavern. I was picking up fish to grill that evening… and your blog was the subject of our conversation in the fish market. I look forward to each and every one you write!
