As many of you know, I’m a big fan of the bubbly, and Champagne — the real deal — has no equal.
Friday, October 23rd, 2015 is the sixth annual celebration of the effervescent wine, made exclusively in the Champagne region of France. Originally designated in 2009 as “a Friday in late October,” World Champagne Day is dedicated to popping corks and raising glasses. International law dictates that only sparkling wine that comes from Champagne can be called… Champagne. So respect the title, friends!
A little while ago, I created an entire full-length Tamara Twist episode to sparkling wine, which you can view on YouTube. The episode is chock-full of recipes, crafting, traditions and trivia.
If you only have a few minutes, check out my Champagne Sabering video here.
So let’s drink a toast to World Champagne Day!

May 25th is National Wine Day. So how about doing some cooking with wine?
In my Tamara Twist Champagne episode I have several ideas for cooking with wine.
Wine Poached Artichokes — they’re so good!
Bellini Popsicles. A refreshing grown-up take on a summer treat.
Champagne Jello Jigglers
Enjoy the day, and do it responsibly!

Hey everyone… I’m so happy to ring in 2014, and with it I offer our latest Tamara Twist video, Champagne-Palooza, now available online. Champagne is such a versatile, enjoyable and fascinating element of celebration, and perfect for our first in-depth episode.
These twists on champagne are, of course, well suited to New Year fetes, but sparkling wine can really be enjoyed any time of year.
In the video, you’ll find trivia, crafts, recipes and all manner of silly fun. I hope you enjoy it.
I had a blast making this episode. Happy celebrating. And remember: Don’t ever let anyone dull your sparkle!

The holiday season is time to celebrate, and nothing says celebration quite like sparkling wine. Here’s a great craft to do with the ‘wretched refuse’ of the celebrations. Take a look.
