Mini Potato Cakes with Smoked Sturgeon and Herbed Cream
The herbed cream can be refrigerated overnight. The potato cakes can be pan-fried 8 hours ahead and kept at room temperature. Reheat in a 325° oven before serving.
A sparkling wine's firm acidity will cut right through the smoky oiliness of the sturgeon. Washington State and Oregon produce some of the best (and most affordable) sparkling wines in the United States.
