The Beer Kitchen by Melissa Cole (Hardback) ISBN: 9781784881887

The Beer Kitchen by Melissa Cole (Hardback) ISBN: 9781784881887

When a recipe calls for `beer' do you have the first clue of what you should add? When was the last time you read a recipe that really specified a beer style, or even suggested a few different brands from the bewildering array on your supermarket shelves? Good news, this book does all that and more.

In The Beer Kitchen award-winning beer expert Melissa Cole has combined two of her greatest passions: great brews and delicious food. Sharing over 70 incredible recipes Melissa expertly guides you through the gustatory pleasure of cooking with beer and what to drink with your creations.

Starting with the `science bits' you will discover the importance between taste and flavour, how to assess beer and pair to perfection. Then dive into the recipes, which include everything from delicious dips, flatbreads and pickles to show-off roasts, classic pies and inventive desserts. Feast on the exquisite Beer-brined Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Polenta or perhaps prepare the perfect Beer-Poached Chicken for Sunday lunch. For mid-week meals, for when you want something hearty but healthy, then dish up the creamy Celeriac Croquettes with Hefeweizen Sauce or the lighter but extremely tasty Warm Kale & Nduja Salad or, for ultimate indulgence, tuck into the Quick Chocolate Pots with Kriek-Soaked Cranberries.

With thorough advice on beer-types and flavour notes to beer and cheese pairing plus a helpful guide to tools and equipment and store cupboard essentials, The Beer Kitchen is a new, scientific and exciting approach to food that will change the way you cook and what you drink with it.
