Champagne and Cheesecake

You’ve just enjoyed a lovely meal at your favourite restaurant, but you feel like to could eat a little bit more, but before you could even think about it, the waiter brings out a gorgeous Raspberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake for you to enjoy.

Now imagine that you don’t need to go out to enjoy a delicate cheesecake, well, funny enough, you don’t need to, Iceland, the shop, not country, have an amazing Raspberry and White Chocolate Cheesecake for a very affordable price available for you to take home and enjoy after your favourite meal.

You’ll also need a bottle of Sparkling Wine to enjoy alongside, to add extra flavour and clean the palate. So let me suggest a perfect pairing for you:

Cheesecake and Champagne Pairing

Paring Notes – “The Champagne comes through and cleanses the palate of the creaminess, and let’s loss red berry flavours, intensifying the raspberry flavours and finishing with a sweet creamy and crumbly cheesecake bass flavours. A combination that makes you want to try it again and again and again.”

A gorgeous looking cheesecake, which requires a lot of willpower not to eat the whole thing, we bought this Cheesecake from our local Iceland store.
