New recipe

These oysters with Champagne gelée couldn’t be more perfect for a New Year’s party! This step-by-step will help you prepare this festive appetizer with ease.

Ingredients (6 servings)


Step 1: Method

Open the oysters and reserve their first water in a bowl. When choosing oysters, be aware that the smaller the number indicating their caliber, the larger the oysters will be.

Strain the water and place it into a pot. Add the gelatin and whisk to dissolve. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat.

Add the Champagne and season with a bit of pepper.

Carefully pour the mixture over the oysters.

Place the oysters on a serving platter covered with rock salt, to keep them from moving. Sprinkle with a few dill sprigs and lemon zest. Chill 2 hours before serving. For a different spin on plating, serve in Champagne coupes.
