Today on Fuhmentaboudit!, Sean Z. Paxton of homebrewchef.com joins us (again!) to talk about cooking with beer. We cover everything from smoked garbanzo bean couscous with witbier to beer jams and sorbets (and don’t forget about the chocolate stout pastry cream). We also bring you a special investigation into what the “Z” in Sean Z. Paxton stands for.

“We’re the only species on this planet that gets to cook. Why not take that? […] To me the gift of me feeding my friends, my family, my guests at a diner that I do, it’s one of the most satisfying things to me because you guys get to walk away and say: ‘wow.'” [34:20] – Sean Z. Paxton

 

“To me, you’re not a good brewer unless you can pour a beer down the drain and say ‘yeah, I messed up.’ Because life is short, you know?” [45:23] – Sean Z. Paxton
