Going grocery shopping? Start by grabbing your favorite craft brew. Crack it open with our stylish, pocket-sized Capper, then get cooking with The Beer Pantry. This cookbook is Chef Adam Dulye’s guide to beer flavor pairing—including 70+ approachable recipes covering everything from clams to chocolate cake.
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, you’ll 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.
