THE BEER PANTRY. Cooking at the Intersection of Craft Beer and Great Food
Learn how to cook for your favorite craft beer.Adam Dulye, executive chef to the Brewers Association, has crafted more than 75 recipes that will elevate the food you eat with your craft beer from pub grub to chef-driven beer cuisine. Learn about the six distinct flavor profiles of craft beer (Crisp & Clean, Hoppy & Bitter, Malty & Sweet, Rich & Roasty, Fruity & Spicy, and Sour, Tart, & Funky), and how to marry each of them with food. The recipes in this book will dispel the notion that beer is just bubbly stuff served by the pitcher with fried food. Among the recipes, youll find appetizers and snacks like Radishes Dipped in Hop Butter, refreshing salads like Four-Carrot Salad with Toasted Grains, hearty entrees like Smoked Beef Brisket with Rosemary Confit Potatoes, and even desserts like Dark Chocolate Soufflés. Complete with beer recommendations that come with each recipe, this book is a treasure trove of ingeniously simple beer-inspired cuisine.
