One last celebration before this decade is history.
My favourite tradition is a toast to the new year with bubbly.
Some years it’s champagne (the good years), other years (the lean years) it’s something sparkling. Either way, bubbly wine is a wonderful way to usher out the old and bring in the new.
This year it’s a local BC wine from Sperling Vineyards.
Reminiscent of a fine quality Champagne, this single-vineyard Pinot Blanc sparkling wine is grown organically and biodynamically, allowing it to truly represent its own unique terroir. Notes of crisp green apple combine with fresh bread dough, lifting subtle floral aromas to make a beautifully balanced, complex bubble. Pair this with assorted canapés to celebrate life.

The grand finale to the New Year’s Eve feast just has to be epic (so, chocolate, right?)
TUXEDO CAKE is nothing short of a show-stopper.
I baked mine in a bundt pan rather than three layers, and shaved white chocolate and shards of candy-cane on top. A bit over the top is the objective tonight.
Wishing all my beautiful readers a Happy New Year and a spectacular 2020!
