New Year’s is behind us and the Post-Holiday Season Holiday season is coming up. That’s my name for the Winter/Spring trinity comprised of Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s, and Easter. With this greeting card industry trifecta comes plenty of good eatin’–ham, corned beef, rabbit, and, for the romantically inclined, strawberries with champagne. Peppered strawberries in champagne brings the heat. And brings the heat. Check out the spicy recipe and you’ll see what I mean.
In most areas you can find beautiful strawberries year round. Use a good quality champagne as the flavor really infuses the strawberries. Serve a glass of champagne with the dessert for a truly decadent finale to dinner.
