Recipe: Champagne Jelly with Golden Raspberries

Champagne Jelly with White Raspberries and Mint While we're always game to kick off a meal with a glass of Champagne, we also love the idea of letting some bubbly spill into the dessert course. In this ethereal treat from chefs Scott Crawford and Steven Greene, Champagne is set into a shimmery, pearl-toned gelée, then garnished with a dab of crème fraîche and golden raspberries, which are milder in flavor than their red cousins. Get the recipe here.
