I am planning a choucroute dinner paired with Alsatian wines. I am having trouble planning the appetizer course. I am trying to find something that is authentic but not too heavy, since the rest of the menu courses will be the choucroute, then cheeses, and then fruit tart.
I would do a salad, but it is hard to pair wine with vinegrette. Any suggestions?
Is choucroute ever made for a dinner party in Alsace?
