On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, Adam Dulye, Executive Chef of the Brewers Association, authored THE BEER PANTRY (thebeerpantry.com), as a guide to cooking FOR beer, not just WITH it. It breaks down craft beer into 6-PACK of flavor profiles (Crisp & Clean, Hoppy & Bitter, Malty & Sweet, Rich & Roasty, Fruity & Spicy, and Sour, Tart, & Funky), which a parallel a palatable lexicon that also describes the foods that best pair with them. Think Grilled Clams with Spicy Corn and Garlic Aioli with a nice refreshing Pilsner. Chicken Thighs with Crispy Yukon Potatoes and Braised Kale with a piney Pale Ale. Chocolate Devil’s Food Cake with Mini Stour Milkshakes. This is not your normal pub grub; this is hand-crafted cooking for better made beers.
