Fancy popping open a bottle of Champagne with dinner tonight? Then check out our many Champagne and Sparkling Wine Food Pairings here at Glass of Bubbly.
What Kind of Food Can I Pair With Champagne?
The short answer is ‘anything’, you just need to find the right sugar level and right flavours, Champagne is very food-friendly, so if you just randomly pick out a bottle of Champagne and pair it with a dish, its most likely going to work in some way or another.
When it comes to the delicacies of the ocoeans, seafood from salmon, tuna, cod, and even sushi, can be very much enjoyed alongside a Glass of Champagne, finding a bottle of Brut or Extra Dry Champagne will be a good idea, you can find The Perfect Seafood & Fizz Pairing here.
Going for a Chinese Takeaway is the most popular takeaway option in the UK, we love dining with Chow Mein, Sweet and Sour Chicken, Crispy Duck, Spring Rolls and Fried Rice. Champagne can pair great with Chinese food, take a look at Pairing Champagne with Traditional Chinese Cuisine for some inspiration.
One of the most enjoyed meals in the world, with thousands being delivered and freshly made every night, Pizza has a lot of potential with Champagne, uterlising the wide array of toppings from the plain Margaretta, Meat Feast, Pepperoni, and dare I say it, Hawaiian, check out Battle of The Bubbles – Pizzaland to see if Champagne is the best pairing, or if its another Sparkling Wine takes the crown.
If you decide that the Hot Dog will be your dinner tonight, then Champagne is still on the table, you may be thinking it’s a bit high class for the standard Hot Dog, but you can go for the likes of a Bratwursts & Frankfurters, needless to say, Pairing Hot Dogs With A Glass of Bubbly gets a thumbs up from me.
Can You Pair Champagne With Quiche? The short answer, Yes, the creamy, pastry dish pairs nicely with a bottle of Champagne, the fluffy dish allows the Champagne to flow through, so if you find a bottle with the flavours you like, then you should give the pairing a go.
French Onion Soup

Although it’s a soup, the meaty and onion flavours allowed this Brut Nature Champagne to join perfectly, you have to try it to understand.
