This recipe definitely sounds spec & would require a spec occasion as it uses only 1/4 cup of dry champagne. I suppose a split can be used or even a good Asti. My source here is my MasterCook Deluxe computer program & they acknowledged the National Honey Board. I will depend on those of you able to try this to tell me if it is as worthy as it appears to me. (Times do not include time for sauce to cool) Enjoy!
