By Staff | Nov 29, 2019

Bailey’s General Store and Chef Karl Hamme of the Sanibel Catering Company recently released the food and champagne pairings for the Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne tasting event, set for Dec. 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Community House, at 2173 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel.

Guests will experience the full portfolio from Nicolas Feuillatte and have an opportunity to purchase the champagne at a discount for their holiday shopping.

The event will begin with the Brut Reserve NV, with aromas of apple, pear and peach intermingled with curry and turmeric spices paired with a curried pear slaw. The second course will be the Brut Ros NV, a delicate mousse with a fruity finish and red fruit aromas, paired with cranberry dijon glazed salmon skewers. Next will be the D’Luscious Demi-Sec Ros NV which is dry and slightly sweet with notes of red fruit and cherry and raspberry flavors paired with Thai spiced shrimp. Finally, the award winning Palmes d’Or 2006 Brut Vintage will be paired with smoked chicken and goat cheese puffs. It features bright flavors of lemon sorbet with a creamy texture and balanced acidity.

The event will culminate with Hamme performing a cooking demonstration.

Assorted mixed nuts, hard cheese and charcuterie will be served throughout the evening, as well as chocolate truffles for dessert.

Tickets are $20 per person.
