So, you know all those pictures of food and beer I post on social media that make you all hungry? Well, I’ve gone and done a thing with it all...
The Beer Kitchen: the art & science of cooking, & pairing, with beer has been a long time in the making in my head (and tummy) but it’s only just become a reality and I am utterly overwhelmed with how many people are looking forward to it and, very importantly, the support my publishing company Hardie Grant UK has given me during its creation.
As many of you may know, I have a huge passion for beer and food matching, but I also love cooking with beer and hate bad science, so I’ve combined all those things to create a book that I sincerely hope will become spattered with grease, smeared with chocolate and get generally battered (but hopefully not deep fried!) through use.
I believe there’ll be something for nearly everyone in there, and I’ve tried to keep it really accessible by breaking it down into four different sections: So Simple, Some Effort, Show Off and Say Cheese.
Inside you’ll find a wide range of options from dishes for dedicated carnivores, to vegetarian & vegan recipes, to sweet toothed temptations and some more refined dishes, that take beer beyond the dull and cliched ‘dude food’ arena.
Out in October, you can pre-order it here https://tinyurl.com/y76nneoz, and thank you all for all your drool emojis, finger wags, requests for home delivery and just being so supportive of me over the years and I hope this doesn’t let you down.
I also want to add a huge thanks to my editor Kajal Mistry, photographer Patricia Niven, designers Not On Sunday and food stylist and hand holder Kathy Kordalis 😘
